Biography – about the artist.

Chefdirigent Münchener Kammerorchester

 

Clemens Schuldt is one of the most exciting young conductors emerging from Germany today, and is the Principal Conductor of the Münchener Kammerorchester. Clemens Schuldt is widely praised for his innovative interpretations of classical and romantic Germanic repertoire, often using his creativity to include lesser-known and contemporary repertoire in his programmes. Highlights of this season with the Münchener Kammerorchester include world premieres by Thomas Adès, Hans Abrahamsen, Beat Furrer and Justė Janulytė, tour performances to Katowice performing in the new concert hall of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, and an appearance at Mozartfest Würzburg. Soloists he works with in Munich include Rafał Blechacz, Ilya Gringolts, Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Gerhild Romberger, as well as a collaboration with Ensemble intercontemporain.


The 2020/21 season sees Schuldt make his debut with Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra with Frank-Peter Zimmermann, Turku Philharmonic Orchestra, Tapiola Sinfonietta with Baiba Skride, Orchestre Symphonique de Québec and Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. He returns to the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra with Alban Gerhardt, and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

Recent highlights in the opera pit include his debut at Venice Biennale conducting George Benjamin’s opera “Written on Skin” with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai. In earlier seasons, Schuldt conducted a new production of “Così fan tutte” with the Münchener Kammerorchester in collaboration with the Theaterakademie to great critical acclaim. Schuldt was Conductor in Residence with the Staatstheater Mainz for two seasons, where he led new productions of Bellini’s “Norma”, Gluck’s “Armide”, Gounod’s “Faust”, Verdi’s “Rigoletto” and conducted performances of Wagner’s “Flying Dutchman”. Prior to this he led performances at the theatres of Innsbruck, Gelsenkirchen and Osnabrück.

Other European orchestras Schuldt has appeared with include the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Radio-Sinfonieorchesters of the WDR, SWR and ORF, Bamberger Symphoniker, Bremer Philharmoniker, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Lahti Symphony Orchestra, Norwegian National Opera Orchestra, Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona. Across the continents he has worked with North Carolina Symphony Orchestra, Oregon Symphony Orchestra, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, Kyoto Symphony Orchestra, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Sinfonietta and Xian Symphony Orchestra.

Clemens Schuldt won the prestigious Donatella Flick Conducting Competition in London in 2010 and was the Assistant Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra for one year.

Press.

„...[the production] is characterised by an exceptional freshness, to which the Munich Chamber Orchestra under Clemens Schuldt contributes decisively. [...] The highlight of the performance, however, is the Munich Chamber Orchestra, which under Clemens Schuldt plays crisply in the historically informed style.“

Robert Braunmüller, Münchner Abendzeitung, 29.11.2018

„The orchestral brilliance of his performance was undeniable.“

Andrew Clements, The Guardian, 23.04.2018

„Young German conductor Clemens Schuldt directed the SCO in a truly exceptional Stravinsky Pulcinella – crisp, driven, richly textured, and giving so many of the orchestra’s musicians the chance to shine as soloists“

The Scotsman, David Kettle, 06.05.2017

„But it was the return of young German conductor Clemens Schuldt […] that were the talking points“

Herald Scotland, Keith Bruce, 10.05.2016

„In Sage Gateshead's latest homage to [Mozart], singers and musicians scaled the heights under conductor Clemens Schuldt“
