Ernest Alexandre Ansermet (pronounced ; 11 November 1883 – 20 February 1969) was a Swiss conductor. Ansermet was born in Vevey, Switzerland. Originally he was a mathematics professor, teaching at the University of Lausanne. He began conducting at the Casino in Montreux in 1912, and from 1915 to 1923 was the conductor for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes.
Ernest Ansermet met Igor Stravinsky in 1911, and the two became fast friends and professional colleagues (though they had their rough moments later on). Ansermet worked closely with the composer and premiered a number of his works, including Symphony of Psalms and Capriccio. Thus, many of these performances are informed with a real sense of authority and authenticity.
Friend of Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky, Ansermet championed their music throughout his long career. His Decca recordings with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande have assumed legendary and benchmark status for much of the French repertoire. Although Toscanini never recorded that many works of French Music as Ernest Ansermet, but his output is substantial. As an interpretative artist Toscanini conducting of the music by Claude Debussy(1862-1918) is on equal terms with Ansermet,particularly in La Mer, Images Pt. 2, Prelude de I' opres- midi d' une Faune,NocturneNo.
