Louis de Froment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Louis de Froment (French: [də fʁɔmɑ̃]; 5 December 1921 – 19 August 1994) was a French conductor.

Froment was born into a French noble family in Toulouse, and started his musical studies at the city conservatory. He later attended the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique (CNSM) of Paris and was a pupil of Louis Fourestier, Eugène Bigot and André Cluytens. In 1948, he received a first prize in conducting.

Louis de Froment served as music director of orchestras at the casinos of Deauville and Cannes. He also worked as head of the permanent chamber orchestra of the radio in Nice (1958–59), of the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio-Télé Luxembourg (1958–80), and also conducted the Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française.

He conducted the première of the Concerto Breve by Xavier Montsalvatge, with Alicia de Larrocha (piano) and the Barcelona Orchestra in 1953, and the opera Les caprices de Marianne by Henri Sauguet at the Aix-en-Provence Festival in 1954.[1]

His recordings include:

Froment was the father of one daughter, Marie-José (Mrs Henry-Mamou), by his first wife Reine Gabriel-Fauré. He died in Cannes in 1994, aged 72.
