18 Jan 2022

Daniel Müller-Schott’s latest release Four Visions of France – French Cello Concertos is named “Concerto Choice” by BBC Music Magazine.

Roger Nichols from the magazine writes, “Müller-Schott has the technique to project the disc’s multitude of moods and to move seamlessly from virtuosity to sensuousness and back again… The Saint-Saëns Concerto is a joy from start to finish, even the most fiendish moments being delivered with aplomb.”

Four Visions of France features the works of Saint Saëns (Cello Concerto No 1; Romance in F, Op. 36)Fauré (Elegie in C Minor, Op. 24), Honegger (Cello Concerto) and Lalo (Cello Concerto). Deutsche Symphonie-Orchestra Berlin also performs on the record, conducted by Alexandre Bloch.

Daniel is one of the most sought-after cellists in the world and can be heard on all the great international concert stages. For many years he has been enchanting audiences as an ambassador for classical music in the 21st century. The New York Times refers to his “intensive expressiveness” and describes him as a “fearless player with technique to burn “.

Four Visons of France – French Cello Concertos is available now on Orfeo Music.
