Daniel Mueller-Schott performed the Dvorak concerto with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival in June 2001. During the rehearsal - I was lucky to attend it - something extraordinary happened. When the echo of the last chord of the first movement had faded away, the uncomparable CSO spontaneously broke into an enormous ovation for the young cellist. Now, with his second CD with French chamber music being released, everybody will be able to verify the enthusiasm of these professional musicians. It is evident that Daniel Mueller-Schott must be ranked among the leading cellists of our time. The particular merit of this EMI recording is not only to be seen in presenting this miracle of a musician but more in the way really great chamber music is performed by Daniel and his absolutely congenial partner Robert Kulek, a Latvian born New Yorker. I actually had not heard of this pianist before, but as an old musician, I dare say Robert Kulek has everything that is needed for a great carrier. If you like to listen to an interpretation bursting of deeply felt passion and fervor in every single note, of breath taking virtuosity and heart breaking lyricisms: on this stunning CD you'll find it in abundance. Thank you, guys, for providing me with a musical experience so intense and cheering I have not had for a long, long time.

Format: Audio CD
Just a few hours after ordering this disc I found out that Müller Schott would be performing with our local symphony orchestra, only five minutes from my doorstep, in less than a week. I got myself a ticket the next day (give him another year and he will sell out everywhere months in advance - and probably will no longer be performing in provincial backwaters...), and was rewarded with the first performance of Prokofiev's rambling, abstruse Sinfonia Concertante that actually made sense to me - all thanks to the musicianship of this young cellist. Sitting in a front row hardly 4 meters away from the performer, I also had ample opportunity to be dazzled by the apparent facility with which even the most demanding technical difficulties were tackled.
That virtuosity needs not get in the way of deeply felt music-making is proved with equal eloquence on this disc. Don't let the cover mislead you; - at first glance you might fear that you are dealing with the male counterpart of one-time cello pin-up Ofra Harnoy. I gathered from a recent interview that Müller Schott considers his uncommon good looks an embarrassment rather than an asset, but clearly his marketing people think otherwise, as evidenced by the sleeve and back inlay of this disc (not to mention his website). However, with musical qualities of this magnitude, you will soon be listening, and be amazed at what you hear! My only recording of the Debussy sonata was that by Maisky and Argerich (EMI), which I always found overblown, aggressive and unduly hectic and rushed - so much so that Maisky is unable to cope with the fast runs in the finale and reduces them to glissandi. Kulek and MS, who form an ideal partnership, inhabit a different world altogether and one, I would guess, much closer to the heart of Debussy.

WONDERFUL: this word describes the music and the performances. Muller-Schott and Kulek play these lovely works with a superb sense of phrasing, dynamics, architecture, and rubato. I bought this CD originally to become familiar with the Debussy and Poulenc Sonatas for cello and piano (I am a pianist), but the unexpected gem on the CD for me is the Franck Sonata in A (originally for violin and piano) transcribed for cello! It is, to me, the best performance of this work I have ever heard, live or recorded. The short Ravel piece which ends the disk is a minuature oasis of quiet beauty. This is one of my favorite CDs in a very extensive collection, and at the price listed it is a great deal!

This marvelous album of cello with piano is filled with music that was written for and/or transcribed for the cello (with piano accompaniment) by some of the biggest names in French classical music. There are works by Claude Debussy (cello sonata in D minor), Francis Poulenc (cello sonata) Cesar Frank (violin sonata transcribed for cello in A major and a short piece by Ravel. Daniel Muller-Scott, on cello with Robert Kuelk on piano play all of the works most wonderfully bring to them much vitality combined with gorgeous tone and very deep emotions--bravo!

I particularly liked the sonata by Poulenc which is filled with his kind of quirky rhythms and melodies. Above all, I loved Daniel Muller-Schott's playing of the Frank--he and Robert Kuelk truly play that work with, as the saying goes, their "hearts on their sleeves". It is so very beautiful and touching.

I expect great things from the very young Daniel Muller-Schott. In light of this recording, he is well on his way to being what will be considered a great cellist.

By the way, the sound of the recording is great too--well balanced and so very warm!
