Notes & Reviews:

Antonín Dvorák's Cello Concerto in B minor is one of the absolute masterpieces of the genre, and every world-class cellist has naturally been keen to take it into his repertoire. This is also true of Daniel Müller-Schott, who in 2014 will be performing it in the great concert halls of Europe and in the Lincoln Center in New York - thus in the very same city where Dvorák worked as a conservatory director and where he wrote the concerto. Dvorák began his work in passionate, stormy mood, but completed it in lyrical, elegiac vein under the shadow of the illness and death of his sister-in-law Josefina, who had been his own first love. At the same time that he is traversing the world's stages with Dvorák's concerto, Daniel Müller-Schott is now also releasing a recording of it, together with the NDR Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Michael Sanderling. Daniel Müller-Schott's new recording also includes several chamber music works and arrangements that offer wonderful proof of how Dvorák gradually accustomed himself to the cello as a solo instrument, up to the point when he composed his concerto in 1894-5. There is the catchy Rondo in G minor op. 94 that Dvorák wrote in 1892 for a chamber music tour, and Silent Woods op. 68/5, an arrangement made for the same tour whose title perfectly matches the peaceful, meditative mood of the work itself. Both pieces can be heard on Daniel Müller-Schott's CD in Dvorák's own orchestral versions. Together with the pianist Robert Kulek, Daniel Müller-Schott has here also recorded arrangements of the four Romantic Pieces op. 75 and of "Songs my mother taught me" op. 55/4 from the Gypsy Songs cycle. The latter is perfectly suited to the cello's cantabile character and to Daniel Müller-Schott's art of interpretation. And finally, we could not refrain from including one of the Slavonic Dances in Dvorák's own arrangement for cello and piano. The Dance in G minor op. 46/8 here completes Daniel Müller-Schott's panorama of the cello music by Antonín Dvorák.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
Mnller-Schott, with his thoughtfully varied articulations and tone colours, digs...deeply into the concerto's expressive detail, in particular bringing out the sense of yearning that's such a powerful aspect of the music.
