Yesterday in Schloß Fuerstenried in Munich, the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation awarded the Aida Stucki Prize to the cellist Daniel Müller-Schott. The award includes prize money of Euro 10,000.
The award ceremony took place within the framework of a concert during the 9th study tour of the Friends of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation e.V. The prize was granted by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation to Daniel Müller-Schott as an acknowledgement of « his outstanding contribution to the cello repertoire. It is not only his exceptional skill as a soloist which makes him a shining example for a whole generation of young cellists. He is unpretentiously devoted to his work alone, an ethos which he passes on in his teaching. This musician thus follows in the strong artistic line of tradition of the violinist and pedagogue Aida Stucki, who established the European tradition of music and music tuition for the future. »
Daniel Müller-Schott is the second musician to receive this special award, which was granted for the first time in 2011 to the contrabassist Roman Patkoló.
