Ernest Ansermet is Decca’s direct link to the cauldron of creativity at the beginning of 20th century music. Friend of Debussy, Ravel and Stravinsky, Ansermet championed their music throughout his long career.

His Decca recordings with the Orchestre de la Suiss Romande have assumed legendary and benchmark status for much of the French repertoire. His good fortune was also to be at the peak of his powers in the mid-1950's when stereo was introduced, thus giving him the opportunity to remake much of his key repertoire.
