“A remarkably talented creator” —Frankfurter Allegemeine Zeitung

German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott is known for performances that “have the
winning freshness of rediscovery” (The Sunday Times). From appearances with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Boston Symphony Orchestra to the revered Wigmore Hall, Müller-Schott has established himself as one of the leading cellists of his generation. He is joined by longtime collaborator Simon Trpčeski, known for his “luminous sound and technical ease” (The Independent) who was appointed the first “National Artist of the Republic of Macedonia” in 2011. This high-profile duo brings vitality and virtuosity to interpretations of masterworks for cello and piano by Beethoven, Brahms and Chopin.

“Electrifying virtuosity… head plus heart, lots of heart” —The London Times
