Within only a few years *Daniel Müller-Schott *has succeeded in establishing himself on the world’s leading concert platforms, a charismatic artist who holds his audiences in thrall with his technical brilliance, sovereign command of his instrument and his ability to enter the intellectual and emotional worlds of the works in his repertory. In his constant quest for a distinctive musical vision, he has always been keen to perform music of the 20th and 21st centuries and to expand the cello repertory, which he does by means of his own transcriptions.

Daniel Müller-Schott’s was only 15 when he won first prize at the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians in Moscow.

As a soloist, Daniel Müller-Schott has appeared with such distinguished conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Andrew Davis, Charles Dutoit, Christoph Eschenbach, Michael Gielen, Alan Gilbert, Bernard Haitink, Dmitri Kitaenko, Yakov Kreizberg, Kurt Masur, Sakari Oramo and André Previn. Among the orchestras with whom he has appeared are the New York Philharmonic, the orchestras of Baltimore, Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia, the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the NDR Symphony Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, the Orchestre de Paris, the BBC Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the New Japan Philharmonic.

He is also a regular guest at international music festivals, including the Salzburg, Lucerne, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Rheingau, Schwetzingen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, as well as the Vancouver Chamber Music Festival and the U.S. Festivals in Ravinia, Tanglewood and Aspen. Daniel Müller-Schott has already built up a sizeable discography and is closely associated with the ORFEO label. His recordings for the company have been highly praised and received several prestigious awards, including the Gramophone Editor’s Choice, the Strad Selection and the BBC Music Magazine’s CD of the month. Both his recording of the Elgar and Walton Cello Concertos and the 2008 release of the Shostakovich Cello Concertos were awarded the Quarterly German Record Critics’ Prize.

Daniel Müller-Schrott has a keen interest in awakening young people’s enthusiasm for music and introducing them to the magical moments of music. He plays the “Ex-Shapiro” Matteo Goffriller cello, made in Venice in 1727.
