About

"Among the finest of today's young cellists, a musician possessed of poise and purity of tone" (The Telegraph), Daniel Müller-Schott plays Dvorák's Cello Concerto on a program that also includes Brahms's Piano Quartet, orchestrated by Schoenberg, and the first NSO performances of Christopher Rouse's Phaethon.

"Dvorák's Cello Concerto is one of the most beautiful, dramatic, poignant, breathtaking pieces of music ever written. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience. I first heard its opening theme when I was 14, riding in a taxi. I could hardly wait to find the music so I could begin to work on it. I'm proud that such a magnificent composition was conceived for my instrument."
--Glenn Garlick, NSO assistant principal cello


Performance Timing: Part One - 48 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 43 min.

Note: Daniel Müller-Schott will sign CDs following all three concerts, in the Grand Foyer outside of the Concert Hall.
