Ernest Ansermet (November 11, 1883-February 20, 1969), was a great conductor who left his mark on the history of classical music with his exquisite and colorful performances. As the conductor for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, he premiered many important compositions of the early 20th century. He is known for founding the Swiss Romande Orchestra in 1919 and, as its musical director, developing it into a global presence. In 1946, he entered an exclusive contract with the Decca label and made a vast amount of recordings covering French, Russian, 20th century, and German and Austrian music. Many of these recordings were highly evaluated in the LP age, complemented as they were by excellent recording technology.
