“For their consistently high technical standards and imagination, Müller-Schott's performances are as recommendable as any among recent recordings.”
“What a magnificent sound, what a splendid feeling for what is fundamental! Daniel Müller-Schott is an exceptional cellist – one who acknowledges the good traditional aspects, yet without appearing to be old-fashioned. On the contrary; even though Müller-Schott can make his cello “sing” all the time, he never loses sight of the musical line. In his playing, everything is influenced by a certain objectivity and instrumental clarity, yet these are characteristics which never have an academic and neutral effect but perfectly complement the expressiveness, virtuosity and traditional beauty.”
“With his cello, Daniel Müller-Schott cultivates a vocal and sonorous tone and develops subtle nuances. Like a vortex he creates cantilenas, spanning a wide range of fine distinctions. A high degree of intensity is coupled with a lightness of playing in which the tone and the changes of character appear to be unbelievably effortless."
