This chapter examines the career development of Georges Barrère during the period from 1909 to 1912. During this period, Barrère remained a Frenchman, a chamber musician and a man of great ambition despite having settled into the routine of an American orchestral musician for the New York Symphony Orchestra (NYSO). Through his Damrosch base, Barrère was able to make a name for himself as a soloist and to associate with other leading musicians including violinist Franz Kneisel and pianist Lillie Sang-Collins.
