Morten Schuldt-Jensen graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Music with conducting, singing and vocal training as his main subjects. He holds the Master of Arts in musicology from the University of Copenhagen. He took postgraduate courses with, among others, Sergiu Celibidache and Eric Ericson.

After successful performances with internationally acclaimed Danish choirs and orchestras Morten Schuldt-Jensen was offered various engagements as a conductor and chorus master in several European countries. In 1995 and 1997 he was appointed Representative Conductor for Denmark (Nordic-Baltic Choral Festival). Morten Schuldt-Jensen is a regular guest conductor for the RIAS Kammerchor, Berlin, the MDR Rundfunk-Chor, Leipzig, the NDR-Chor, Hamburg, the Akademie für Alte Musik, Berlin, the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and the Helsingborgs Symfoniorkester, and has worked frequently with the Danish National Radio Choir and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Copenhagen.

As a chorus-master he has worked for conductors including Simon Rattle, Herbert Blomstedt, Philippe Herreweghe, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Lothar Zagrosek, among many others. From 1999 to 2006 he was director of choirs at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, where he founded the internationally highly acclaimed professional Gewandhaus Chamber Choir in 2001. Today the ensemble is known as the Immortal Bach Ensemble. In 2000 he was appointed principal conductor and artistic director of the Leipzig Chamber Orchestra, which developed a new profile under his artistic credo. A wide-ranging and partly forgotten repertoire, accurate sense of style, and broad variety of interpretation characterise the successful partnership with both ensembles and have been documented in a number of recordings and broadcasts.

Morten Schuldt-Jensen has won several prizes and awards. In 1984, in his home country, Denmark, he founded and has since conducted the Sokkelund Sangkor, a leading chamber choir, with which he has won several international awards. He also founded the symphonic Tivoli Concert Choir. An important element is his work at different academies of music. In 1992 he was associate professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, from 2001 to 2006 he lectured at the Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Leipzig and in 2006 he was appointed to the professorship of choral and orchestral conducting at the Staatliche Musikhochschule in Freiburg/Breisgau.

Morten Schuldt-Jensen has conducted at some of the best known European music venues and festivals, including the Gewandhaus and Thomaskirche in Leipzig, the Philharmonie Berlin, the Rheingau Musik Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein-Festival, the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, MDR-Musiksommer, the Bachfest and the Mendelssohn-Festtage in Leipzig, and also at the Seoul International Music Festival, Korea, and at the Kioi Hall in Tokyo, combined with extensive touring throughout Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Japan and Scandinavia.
