Reviews

“The magnetic young German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott administered a dose of adrenaline with a compelling performance of Haydn’s Concerto in C. Mr. Müller-Schott, a fearless player with technique to burn, made child’s play of the work’s difficulties. But even more impressive were his gorgeous, plush tone and his meticulous attention to expression.”

The New York Times

“The German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott joined the orchestra in a soulful performance of [Dvořák’s] Cello Concerto that was particularly memorable for his sensitive playing and refined sound in the quiet passages. There was magic in the interplay between soloist and individual orchestra voices, and in Mr. Müller-Schott’s hushed, almost lifeless penultimate note that grew into the soaring, jubilant conclusion.”
