Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the developments in the career of Georges Barrère during the period from 1921 to 1926. It did not take long for Barrère to recover from his psychological and financial problems in the spring of 1921. His mood was lifted when his true protégé, William Kincaid, had been appointed principal flute of the Philadelphia Orchestra. To further forget the spring of 1921, Barrère engaged in a series of concert tours and teaching projects. In 1926, Barrère ceded the Pierné premiere to his American protégé, Kincaid, who in his own style would forge a distinctive American style of flute playing.

Keywords: Georges Barrère; William Kincaid; Philadelphia Orchestra; concert tours; teaching
