Renowned German cellist, won 1st Prize at Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians at age 15 and Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation scholarship.
The magnetic German-born cellist Daniel Müller-Schott first came to worldwide attention at the age of fifteen, when he won first prize at the 1992 Tchaikovsky International Competition for Young Musicians. But his career really took flight as one of his generation’s leading cellists from about 2000, the year his first recording was issued. Following a recital in New York, the Times described him as ‘a fearless player with technique to burn’ and noted his ‘gorgeous, plush tone and his meticulous attention to expression’. Müller-Schott has a special interest in discovering unknown works and extending the cello repertoire. A number of contemporary composers, including André Previn, have written works for him. The cellist has a keen interest in awakening the enthusiasm of young people for music, a pursuit he follows by supporting the Rhapsody in School project, through which classical artists visit schools all over Germany to help cultivate an interest in music. His extensive discography includes all the major works by Prokofiev and Shostakovich, as well as the complete Beethoven sonatas and variations with pianist Angela Hewitt, which was awarded five stars by the London Daily Telegraph. Müller-Schott plays the ‘Ex Shapiro’ Matteo Goffriller cello, made in Venice in 1727.
