Daniel Müller-Schott – Cellist

“The magnetic young German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott...a fearless player with technique to burn ... even more impressive were his gorgeous, plush tone and his meticulous attention to expression.” The New York Times

With technical brilliance and authority, with intellect and emotional esprit, Daniel Müller-Schott is establishing himself on the world’s concert podiums.

Müller-Schott plays with internationally significant orchestras; in Europe he plays with Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig, the radio orchestras of Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Leipzig and Hamburg, the Orchestre de Paris, BBC Philharmonic, in the US with the orchestras in Cleveland, Chicago as well as San Francisco. He gives con-certs under noted conductors as Christoph Eschenbach, Iván Fischer, Alan Gilbert, Bernard Haitink, Jakub Hrůša, Pietari Inkinen, Neeme Järvi, Dmitrij Kitajenko, Sir Neville Marriner, Jun Märkl, Andris Nelsons, Gianandrea Noseda and Kurt Masur as well as Sakari Oramo, Vasily Petrenko, Sir André Previn, Michael Sanderling, Jukka-Pekka Saraste and Krzysztof Urbański.

Beyond that Daniel Müller-Schott is a current guest at international music festivals, such as at the BBC Proms in London, Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau, Schwetzingen, the Schubertiade, the Heidelberger Frühling as well as at the Festival Vancouver and in the US at the Festivals in Tanglewood, Ravinia and at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Besides performing the famous Cello concertos, Daniel Müller-Schott is an enthusiastic discov-erer of unknown works, as his concern is to extend the Cello repertoire - Sir André Previn and Peter Ruzicka dedicated Cello concertos to him.

Highlights of the 2013/14 season include concerts with the New York Philharmonic and Boston Symphony Orchestra under Charles Dutoit, the US premiere of André Previn’s concerto, con-certs with Munich Philharmonic under Lorin Maazel, a tour with the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Iván Fischer as well as the season opening concerts of the CBSO Birmingham under Andris Nelsons. Müller-Schott also plays with the Staatskapelle Weimar, the Dresden Philhar-monic Orchestra and for the first time with the ensemble “l’arte del mondo”. He will also perform Chamber music concerts with Baiba Skride and Xavier de Maistre, Viviane Hagner and Jona-than Gilad and duo recitals with Simon Trpčeski.

Born in Munich in 1976, Daniel Müller-Schott studied under Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff and Steven Isserlis and was a scholar recipient of Anne-Sophie Mutter’s Foundation. In 1992 Mül-ler-Schott took first prize of the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians.

Many of his discs, out of a large discography, were assigned with prices. His instrument, the “Ex Shapiro” Matteo Goffriller was made in Venice in 1727.
