Chamber music is an important part of Müller-Schott’s music-making. In addition to a solo recital tour to Asia, he performs in trios with Julia Fischer and Nils Mönkemeyer as well as with Baiba Skride and Xavier de Maistre. He will premiere Sebastian Currier’s piano trio with Anne-Sophie Mutter and Lambert Orkis in New York’s Carnegie Hall and in Chicago.

Recording for Orfeo, Müller-Schott’s extensive discography includes his latest release ‘#CELLOREIMAGINED’ with l’arte del mondo, featuring arrangements of concertos by C.P.E. and J.S. Bach, Haydn and Mozart. His ‘DUO SESSIONS’ recording with Julia Fischer won numerous awards not least the ICMA 2017 (chamber music) Award. He anticipates the release of his next disc in autumn 2018, which includes works by Tchaikovsky, Glazunov and Rimsky-Korsakov with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Aziz Shokhakimov.

Müller-Schott received the 2013 Aida Stucki Award and also benefited early on from sponsorship by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Through this support he was taught privately by the late Mstislav Rostropovich for a year. Müller-Schott also studied with Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff and Steven Isserlis. In 1992 Müller-Schott won first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition, Moscow. He plays the “Ex Shapiro” Matteo Goffriller cello, Venice, 1727.

Reviews and quotes.

„Schumann’s Cello Concerto felt more like a love song, and Muller-Schott sang it beautifully, his penetrating tone reminiscent of the voice of a lyric tenor. Schumann was a conflicted man and Muller-Schott evoked that with phrases that quickly shifted from bright to aggressive. His second-movement duet with principal cellist Anthony Ross proved an intimate and involving conversation, and Muller-Schott’s final cadenza was far more contemplative than customary, making the finale’s flurry of frenzied notes a stirring contrast.“

Twin Cities, Minnesota, Rob Hubbard, 10.05.2018

„“This performance glowed. It captured these sentiments superbly. Daniel Müller-Schott’s tone and technical facility were beyond criticism, and his reading was heart-achingly sensitive: tenderly sentimental and nostalgic, yet not in the least maudlin.”“

Seen and Heard International, Ian Lace, 26.04.2018

„“Dvořák’s Cello Concerto has unearthed some wonderful performers in its hundred-year-plus history. Daniel Müller-Schott is no exception and produced an account in which he fully identified with the work’s changeable emotions. […] Müller-Schott found just the right blend of sugar-coated musing and generous warmth, both qualities captivating in the closing pages of the Finale.“

Classical Source, David Truslove, 25.04.2018

„“The ever-so-musical Müller-Schott had an undeniably tonal beauty and every percussive element was kept with lyrical allure. The aristocratic coolness residing in his husky vibratos reflected the overall picture of unhurried steadiness, yet the momentum was not slack as the concerto concluded in a noble spirit.”“

bachtrack, Young-Jin Hur, 16.04.2018

„Everything sounds as if it was originally conceived for cello, with the added bonus of wider tessitural possibilities, which are nicely utilised in these transcriptions and tempered by a beautifully clear recording. Expert and stylish performances from Müller-Schott and the period orchestra L’Arte del Mondo present a magical partnership, tasteful playing coupled with judiciously elegant shaping of phrases.[…] a brilliantly executed, beautifully recorded and tremendously enterprising project. [about the recording „#Celloreimagined“]“

The Strad, Joanne Talbot, (review about the recording „#Celloreimagined“), 01.03.2018

„“Strauss' Don is eloquent but his line emerges inside a brilliantly accomplished orchestral fabric. Daniel Muller-Schott gave a generous, soaring account of the solo part, energetic and solid throughout the ten variations that comprise the work's central structure”“

The Sydney Morning Herald, Clive O'Connell, 25.06.2017
