Clemens Schuldt

Biography – about the artist.

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 Johannes Maria Staud, Vito Žuraj and Martón Illés’ violin concerto with Patricia Kopatchinskaja, composer portraits of Younghi Pagh-Paan, Klaus Huber and Johannes Maria Staud, and tour concerts opening the Kasseler Musiktage and the Philharmonie Cologne. Soloists he works with in Munich include Arabella Steinbacher, Alexander Melnikov, The King’s Singers as well as the Trondheim Voices.


The 2019/20 season sees Schuldt give his debut in London with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall with Augustin Hadelich, Orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin with Christian Tetzlaff, Bremer Philharmoniker with Frank Peter Zimmermann, Sinfonieorchester St. Gallen with Kian Soltani and the Tonkünstler-Orchester. He returns twice to the BBC Philharmonic including a programme with Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7 at Bridgewater Hall, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, l'Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Musikkollegium Winterthur and Swedish Chamber Orchestra. Across the continents he gives his debuts with the Oregon Symphony, Kyoto Symphony Orchestra and Xi’an Symphony Orchestra with Khatia Buniatishvili.

Much anticipated opera highlights include his debut at Venice Biennale conducting George Benjamin’s opera “Written on Skin” with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai in September 2019 as well as his debut at Garsington Opera, conducting Mozart’s early opera “Mitridate” with The English Concert in Spring 2020, including Elizabeth Watts and Robert Murray. Last season 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 Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, WDR Sinfonieorchester, SWR Symphonieorchester, and ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien, Bamberger Symphoniker, 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 Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona. Across the continents he has worked with North Carolina Symphony, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, New Japan Philharmonic, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

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. Born in Bremen, he studied the violin performing in the Gürzenich-Orchester Köln and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, before taking up his conducting studies in Dusseldorf, Vienna and Weimar.

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“
