Brahms said of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, “Why on earth didn’t I know that one could write a cello concerto like this? If I had only known, I would have written one long ago!” Daniel Mueller-Schott, one of the finest cellists in the world today, joins the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra to perform this brilliant masterpiece on February 26 – 28 at Bass performance Hall. Book-ending the concerto are two popular works based on literary hero Don Juan: Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni, K. 527 and Strauss’ Don Juan, Op. 20. Liszt’s Les préludes will conclude the concerts on Saturday and Sunday. Giancarlo Guerrero, music director of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, conducts.

The concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Learn more about the music at Symphonic Insights, with host Principal Keyboardist Shields-Collins “Buddy” Bray one hour before each concert in the audience chamber.

He has appeared with many of the world’s major orchestras including the BBC Symphony, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony, NDR-Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, New York Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National de France, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Vancouver Symphony. His numerous festival appearances include those in Aspen, Ravinia, Tanglewood, Vail, Lucerne, Rheingau, Salzburg, and Schleswig-Holstein.

Upcoming and recent highlights include return engagements with the Boston and Philadelphia orchestras, a residency at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, and debuts with the Göteborg Symphony, London Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Spanish National Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. He also appeared in a special concert honoring the composers who perished at Theresienstadt in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall in May.

Mueller-Schott studied under Walter Nothas, Heinrich Schiff and Steven Isserlis. At the age of 15, he received worldwide acclaim by taking first prize at Moscow’s International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians. More recently, he has benefited from the personal sponsorship and support of Anne-Sophie Mutter as the holder of a scholarship from her foundation. Born in 1976, he lives in his hometown of Munich.

Giancarlo Guerrero’s 2009-10 season marks his first as music director of the Nashville Symphony. A champion of new music, Guerrero has collaborated with and conducted the music of several of America’s most respected composers, including John Adams, John Corigliano, Osvaldo Golijov, Jennifer Higdon, Michael Daugherty, and Roberto Sierra.

His guest conducting engagements this season include appearances with the symphony orchestras of Milwaukee, New Jersey, Vancouver, and Edmonton as well as the Pacific Symphony, Curtis Symphony Orchestra, and Slovenian Philharmonic. He recently debuted with the Gulbenkian Orchestra and Royal Scottish National Orchestra. He has also appeared with the orchestras of Baltimore, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Cleveland as well as the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and the National Symphony Orchestra.

Equally at home with opera, Guerrero works regularly with the Costa Rican Lyric Opera and in recent seasons has conducted new productions of Carmen, La bohème, and Rigoletto. In 2008 he gave the Australian premiere of Osvaldo Golijov’s Ainadamar at the Adelaide Festival to great acclaim.

In 2004 he was awarded the Helen M. Thompson Award by the League of American Orchestras, which recognizes outstanding achievement among young conductors nationwide. He holds degrees from Baylor and Northwestern universities.

Previous positions include music director of the Eugene Symphony, associate conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra — where he made his subscription debut leading the world premiere of John Corigliano’s Phantasmagoria on the Ghosts of Versailles — and music director of the Táchira Symphony Orchestra in Venezuela.

The German Daniel Müller-Schott is one of the most interesting cellists in activity.
He is a partner chosen by Anne-Sophie Mutter for the interpretation of the Brahms Double Concerto, which in turn, registered with Julia Fischer.
We here have praised the merits of his concert of Elgar, clearly relieved at the expense of tradition.

It operates here with the same treatment in the German romantic music in a brilliant program that certifies his intelligence and curiosity.
The Schumann concerto is associated with the Robert Volkmann, a friend of Brahms Schumann. There is also a rare Romance of the young Richard Strauss and Bruch’s Kol Nidrei.

Daniel Müller-Schott is the opposite of Mischa Maisky.
He plays everything with little touches and refinement, where the Russian media press on the arch and feelings (which is a good zeugma!). Highly recommended, with the added bonus of a clip to listen to on our site. (Christopher Huss)

As a guest of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the german cellist Daniel Müller-Schott has made a series of presentations in english cities, especially this week when he was in London opening season of concerts.

Performing works by Schumann, the young cellist has the company’s new conductor of the orchestra Kirill Karabits, brings some of the great works of German Romantic repertoire, as well as the music of his Ukrainian colleague, Valentin Silvestrov.

According to news published on BBC Radio , Silvestrov shun the idea of composing new music, instead, describes his work as “… a response and an echo of what already exists.” His Serenade creates a unique and delicate tapestry of dramatic and emotional textures.

Daniel enters as the fearless cellist who:

Take the cello and leads to the next level.
Schumann creates a dialogue that flows between solist and orchestra, with a finesse of idiomatic writer on cello,
in a style full of grace and effortless beauty. – The report said.
