Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the career development of Georges Barrère in 1900. This was a busy year for Barrère. While he was amid the traditionalists of the Paris Conservatoire, he was also actively involved in the performance and promotion of various types and generations of composers and their music. In February, he played in a concert at the Théâtre des Mathurins devoted to the music of Adolphe Deslandres and in March, he substituted for rival Philippe Gaubert in the Mozart Concerto for flute and harp.
