The World of the Damrosch Brothers, 1905–09
This chapter examines the career development of Georges Barrère during the period from 1905 to 1909. In June 1950, Michelette Barrère came to New York to join his husband and perform for Walter Damrosch's orchestra as a flutist. In October of that year, Damrosch's older brother Frank established the Institute of Musical Art, which later eclipsed the success of other conservatories in the New York area. During this period, Walter organized a series of orchestra tours which had an influence on American flutists. Barrère's success influenced many other careers and it epitomized the triumph of French woodwind style.
