[Clemens Schuldt] ran a welcome shot of electricity through the symphonies that bookended the concert. The orchestra played Mozart’s Symphony No 34 with razor-sharp attack in the outer movements, and Haydn’s Symphony No 90 glowed from its buoyant first movement through to its false ending, Haydn’s most outrageous musical joke.

Schuldt has a lovely flowing approach to this music (Haydn…), which allows for some quite lush, extravagant phrasing while never denying the lessons learned from period performance.

[...] the orchestral brilliance of his performance was undeniable.

Clemens Schuldt […] got a grip on the orchestral shape so as to provide a triumphal recapitulation in the first movement, as well as a blissful string tone in the second.

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.
