Louis de Froment

Louis de Froment initially studied violin, flute and harmony at the Toulouse Conservatoire, before entering the Paris Conservatoire where his teachers included Louis Fourestier, Eugène Bigot and André Cluytens. He graduated in 1948 with the first prize for conducting and during the following year formed L’Orchestre du Club d’Essai de la Radiodiffusion Française, coming into contact with many young composers of the period. At the same time he founded his own chamber orchestra, and together with the flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal as soloist, toured Europe at its head. He served as musical director for the casinos of Cannes and Deauville until 1956, and of the Vichy between 1953 and 1969; conducted at the Opéra-Comique, Paris, and was chief conductor of the Chamber Orchestra of Radio Nice for the 1958–1959 season. Then de Froment took up the post for which he is best remembered, that of chief conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of Radio Luxembourg, and held this position until 1980, after which he became the orchestra’s principal guest conductor.
