Daniel Müller-Schott ranks among the world’s best cellists of his generation and can be heard on all of the foremost international concert stages. He has made his mark by delighting audiences for two decades “a fearless player with technique to burn” (New York Times).

Daniel Müller-Schott guests with leading international orchestras; in the US with the orchestras in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Los Angeles; in Europe the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Gewandhausorchestra Leipzig, the Radio Orchestras from Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Leipzig and Hamburg, Copenhagen and Paris, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, the Spanish National Orchestra as well as in Australia with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and in Asia with Tokyo’s NHK Symphony Orchestra, Taiwan’s National Symphony Orchestra and Seoul Philharmonic.

All over the world Daniel Müller-Schott has appeared in concert with such renowned conductors as Thomas Dausgaard, Charles Dutoit, Christoph Eschenbach, Iván Fischer, Alan Gilbert, Gustavo Gimeno, Bernard Haitink, Neeme Järvi, Dmitrij Kitajenko, Jun Märkl, Andris Nelsons, Gianandrea Noseda, Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Vasily Petrenko, Sir André Previn and Krzysztof Urbański. Many years of musical collaboration linked him with Kurt Masur, Lorin Maazel and Yakov Kreizberg.

In addition to performances of the great cello concertos, Daniel Müller-Schott has a special interest in discovering unknown works and extending the cello repertoire, e.g. with his own adaptations and through cooperation with contemporary composers. Sir André Previn and Peter Ruzicka have both dedicated a cello concerto to him which he premiered under the composers’ batons. Previn's cello concerto experienced further premieres with Daniel Müller-Schott, in Japan in 2015 with the Osaka Philharmonic Orchestra under Gustavo Gimeno and, before that, in 2014 in the USA. American-born Sebastian Currier composed a cello sonata for Daniel Müller-Schott. Olli Mustonen’s Sonata for Cello and Piano was premiered by the performer and the composer in the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg; at the Cello Biënnale Amsterdam the cellist performs the arrangement for string orchestra with the composer conducting.

Daniel Müller-Schott studied under Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff and Steven Isserlis and benefited early on from personal sponsorship by Anne-Sophie Mutter as the holder of a scholarship from her foundation. Through this support, Daniel Müller-Schott was taught privately by Mstislav Rostropovich for a year. In 1992, at the age of fifteen, he first caused a sensation internationally by winning the 1st Prize at the Moscow International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians.

Beside the music Daniel Mueller-Schott has also a considerable affinity for the fine arts, in particular for French paintings of the 19th century. During his travels he always visit the major museums, seeing the great masters in the original.

Daniel Müller-Schott plays the “Ex Shapiro” Matteo Goffriller cello, made in Venice in 1727.
