At the beginning of 1918, Barrère remained busy with the recording of Trio de Lutèce for Columbia Records and teaching. In addition, he also performed in a series of concert tours. The major initiative for the spring of 1921 was a long tour with the Ballet Intime. His success continued, however his friendship and relationship with other musicians was damaged because of financial issues.
