Eugene Bigot (1888 - 1965)

Eugène Bigot was born in Rennes and studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Xavier Leroux, André Gédalge and Paul Vidal. After graduating he began his professional career as chorusmaster at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Paris, where he took part in the theatre’s inaugural season in 1913–1914 under the direction of Ingelbrecht. During World War I he fought in the French army, winning the Croix de Guerre. With the return of peace he became assistant conductor of the Concerts Pasdeloup in 1919, quickly followed by several seasons as the conductor of the Ballets Suédois (1920–1923). In 1923 he became conductor of the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire. He returned to the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées as director of music between 1925 and 1928, before being named as the first conductor of French Radio in 1928, a post that he held until 1934. After a single season at Monte Carlo, 1934–1935, he succeeded Albert Wolff as president and conductor of the Lamoureux Orchestra, remaining in charge of its concerts from 1935 until 1951. At the same time he was chief conductor at the Opéra-Comique in Paris between 1936 and 1947.
