Daniel Müller-Schott

Daniel Müller-Schott ranks among the best cellists of his generation and has made his mark as “a fearless player with technique to burn” (New York Times). He has worked with many international orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, London Philharmonic, London's Philharmonia, Berlin Philharmonic, Gewandhausorchestra Leipzig, the Orchestre National de Radio France, Tokyo’s NHK Symphony Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic, and radio orchestras in Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Leipzig, and Hamburg. Sir André Previn and Peter Ruzicka have both dedicated cello concertos to him that he premiered under the composers’ batons. He appears at international festivals and venues including the Proms in London, the Schubertiade, Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau, Schwetzingen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Vancouver Chamber Music, Tanglewood, Ravinia, and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. His newest recording is a collection of violin/cello duos with Julia Fischer, awarded the ICMA award 2017, and past recordings from his extensive discography include the Beethoven cycle with Angela Hewitt and the complete Britten and Bach solo suites. He has received numerous awards, including the Diapason d’Or, Gramophone Editor’s Choice, Strad Selection, and in 1992, at the age of 15, he won First Prize at the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians. Born in Munich, Mr. Müller-Schott studied under Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff, Steven Isserlis, and Mstislav Rostropovich, and benefited early on from personal sponsorship by Anne-Sophie Mutter as the recipient of a scholarship from her foundation. He plays the “Ex Shapiro” Matteo Goffriller cello, made in Venice in 1727.
