Louis Antoine Jullien [Roch Albert] (1812-1860) was born in Sisteron, France, and was baptised Louis George Maurice Adolphe Roche Albert Abel Antonio Alexandre No� Jean Lucien Daniel Eug�ne Joseph-le-brun Joseph-Bar�me Thomas Thomas Thomas-Thomas Pierre Arbon Pierre-Maurel Barth�lemi Artus Alphonse Bertrand Dieudonn� Emanuel Josu� Vincent Luc Michel Jules-de-la-plane Jules-Bazin Julio C�sar Jullien (his thirty-six Christian names having been bestowed by members of the Sisteron Philharmonic), and studied at the Paris Conservatoire. He penned La Tarantelle de Belphegor under the name Roch Albert. position in the school, and after conducting the band of the Jardin Turc he was compelled to leave Paris to escape his creditors, and came to London, where he formed a good orchestra and established promenade concerts. Subsequently he travelled to Scotland, Ireland and America with his orchestra. For many years he was a familiar figure in the world of popular music in England, and his portly form with its gorgeous waistcoats occurs very often in the early volumes of the magazine Punch. He brought out an opera, Pietro il grande, at Covent Garden in 1852 on a scale of magnificence that ruined him, for the piece was a complete failure, despite the presence of Enrico Tamberlik in the title-role. He was in America until 1854, when he returned to London for a short time; ultimately he went back to Paris, where, in 1859, he was arrested for debt and put into prison. He died in an asylum at Neuilly-sur-Seine, but was still remembered in London twenty years after his death: he was described as "Jullien, the eminent musico" in W. S. Gilbert�s’s libretto for Patience in 1882.
