This chapter examines the career development of Georges Barrère during the period from 1898 to 1899. Upon his return home to Paris and to civilian life in October 1898, Barrère resumed substituting in the Opéra, rejoined the Colonne Orchestra, and again took up the leadership of his chamber music society. In addition to his orchestral and opera commitments, Barrère quickly re-established his presence in the city's chamber music scene. In 1899, he played several concerts with the Société des Instruments à Vent (SMIV) and worked with other noted musicians including Émile Bernard, Théodore Dubois and Georges Longy.
