Renowned German cellist, won First Prize at the Moscow Tchaikovsky competition for young musicians at age 15 and a scholarship from Anne-Sophie Mutter’s foundation.
Daniel Müller-SchottOct. 3, 2010
German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott has studied with Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff and Steven Isserlis, and benefitted from the personal sponsorship of Anne-Sophie Mutter as the holder of a scholarship from her foundation. In 1992 at the age of 15, he first caused a sensation internationally by winning the First Prizes at the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians. Now one of the world’s foremost cellists, he is known for his technical brilliance and authority, coupled with great intellectual and emotional spirit. He is particularly interested in discovering unknown works and extending his repertoire on the cello, for example through his own transcriptions, performing 20th and 21st century works and in working closely with contemporary composers. He appears with top symphony orchestras and with such notable chamber music partners as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Angela Hewitt, Steven Isserlis, the Fauré Quartett and the Quatuor Ebène among others. He is also a regular guest at international music festivals.
