Biography – about the artist.

Hailed by the press as one of the most exciting conductors emerging from Germany today, Clemens Schuldt is widely praised for his innovative interpretations and his deep understanding of music.

In 2019 he made his acclaimed debut at the Venice Biennale, conducting George Benjamin's opera "Written on Skin" with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai.

Press.

„Schuldt drew a wonderfully precise, elegant account from the SCO players, teasing apart Grime’s coruscating textures while retaining their power.“

David Kettle, The Scotsman, 08.04.2022

„The young principal conductor of the Munich Chamber Orchestra is considered one of Germany's up-and-coming conductors with ambitions. After the final chord, he and the orchestra received long-lasting applause on Tuesday.“

Manfred Merz, Giessener Anzeiger, 01.12.2021

„This was a lovely, light way to be reintroduced to the experience of hearing live music again, and an upbeat concert enjoyed by all was just the ticket, brought by a wonderful orchestra and captivating conductor.“

Karl Hornsey, On-Magazin, 01.11.2021

„Buzzing with energy, Schuldt conducted a vibrant and animated performance of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony […]“

Claire Seymour, Seen and Heard International, 14.10.2019

„...[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
