This chapter sums up the key findings of this study about the life and career of flutist Georges Barrère. In France, Barrère was certainly very talented, but he was no prodigy, in fact, he was overtaken by the younger Philippe Gaubert. However, being both students of Claude Paul Taffanel, they maintained a cordial relationship and became devoted disciples of Taffanel and successful teachers of that tradition. In 1905, he went to the U.S. to perform for the New York Symphony Orchestra (NYSO) where he made a successful career as flutist, soloist and chamber musician. His success has influenced the younger generation of both American and French flutists.
