Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Daniel Müller-Schott is a truly charismatic player, technically brilliant and with a penetrating, highly expressive tone. He’s well partnered by Robert Kulek and the duo is recorded with vivid realism, so this Schumann has many advantages. The single original work, the Fünf Stücke im Volkston, is supplemented, not just by the Opp 70, 73, and 94 pieces in which the cello is a familiar alternative to the original scoring for wind, but with three effective arrangements by Müller-Schott himself.
Several of the performances are really fine: a heart-on-sleeve account of Op 70’s Adagio, leading to some splendidly incisive playing in the following Allegro, a performance of the Volkston pieces that grabs every opportunity to present quirky
Read more individuality, alternating with a mood of intense meditation in the second piece. And the Fantasiestücke have a lyrical fullness that speaks directly to the listener."
