The New York Times describes Daniel Müller-Schott as a “fearless player with technique to burn” and now the cellist is to perform with violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter in two concerts in January 2020. Both concerts are a celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday with their respective programs consisting of works by the composer.
The first concert is on 27 January at the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. The program includes Beethoven’s early String Trio as well as his String Quartet No. 10 composition. Also in the program is the world premiere of a string quartet by German composer Jörg Widmann, whose music is often paired with Beethoven’s, and who, in 2018, was surveyed as being one of the world’s top three most-performed living composers. The piece is titled “Study on Beethoven, 6th String Quartet” and Müller-Schott will perform with Violinist Ye-Eun Choi and Violist Babeshko Vladimir.
The following concert is on 30 January at Carnegie Hall in New York. This concert is part of Carnegie Hall’s Great Artists series which is a collaboration of performers from around the world performing various works by Beethoven. Featuring pianist Lambert Orkis, Müller-Schott also performs Beethoven’s Piano Trio in D Major. The program for this concert also features the Spring sonata paired with the contrasting intensity of the Kreutzer.
The 2019/20 season for Müller-Schott also includes concerts in Europe with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Vasily Petrenko as well as performing with the Czech Philharmonic and Jakub Hrůša.
