06.06.2010, 02:14

François Ruhlmann (born Brussels 11 January 1868, died 1948) was a French conductor.

He was a pupil of Joseph Dupont in Brussels. As a child he sang in the chorus at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, and at 7 played the oboe in the orchestra.

Ruhlmann’s first conducting engagement was at the Théâtre des Arts in Rouen in 1892. This was followed by further work in Liège and Antwerp, before a return to the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in 1898.


François Ruhlmann began his career at the Opéra-Comique, Paris on 6 September 1905 (with Carmen), then at the death of Alexandre Luigini became principal conductor in 1906 (retiring from the position in 1914). Although mobilised in 1914, he returned occasionally during the war to conduct.


From 1911 he conducted at the theatre of the Casino of Aix-les-Bains. Later he championed works by Dukas, Debussy, Fauré and Ravel at the Concerts Populaires in Brussels. In 1920 Ruhlmann tried to mediate in a dispute involving the musicians unions in Paris, although he sympathised with the players.

In 1919 he transferred to the Opéra, where he remained until 1938.


He conducted many operatic premieres:


Les Pêcheurs de Saint Jean (Widor) 1905

Les Armaillis (Doret) 1906

Le roi aveugle (Février) 1906

Ariane et Barbe-bleue (Dukas) 1907

He was long associated with Pathé, for whom he made many recordings, including six complete operas after 1910, including Rigoletto (Verdi) on 28 sides; Faust (Gounod) on 54 sides; and Le Trouvère (Verdi), 1912 on 38 sides. He also conducted the 1911 Pathé recording of Carmen.
