Clemens Schuldt

'Enthusiastic and full of energy' is the chosen title of the Süddeutsche Zeitung for their article on Clemens Schuldt, principal conductor of the Munich Chamber Orchestra as of the 16/17 season. Until recently a passionate chamber musician himself, Schuldt has been invited to conduct many internationally-renowned chamber orchestras since his conducting career began, including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, Lapland Chamber Orchestra, and Hong Kong Sinfonietta. He studied the symphonic repertoire intensively during his time as a violinist in the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. On winning the Donatella Frick Competition in 2010, he became Assistant Conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, where he conducted several premieres and education projects - ventures close to his heart.

Opera has increasingly become a focus for Clemens Schuldt. After five productions of his own in Innsbruck and Mainz, and numerous opera performances from Gluck to Wagner, he feels very much at home in this repertoire. This versatility, along with his energy-fuelled interpretations, broad stylistic range and sensitive musicianship have made him a much sought-after guest throughout Europe, Asia and Australia (Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Bamberg Symphony, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Barcelona Symphony, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Yumiuri Nippon Orchestra Tokyo, Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra).

Highlights of the 16/17 season include returns to the Philharmonia Orchestra London and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra with concerts in the Concertgebouw, and debuts with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, New Japan Philharmonic and Swedish Chamber Orchestra. The emphasis will be on the symphonies of Haydn, Beethoven and Schumann, alongside 21st century works from composers such as Saariaho and Abrahamsen in portrait concerts with the Munich Chamber Orchestra.
