Georges Barrère

Barrère, Georges (zhôrzh bärĕrˈ) [key], 1876–1944, French-American flutist and conductor, grad. Paris Conservatory, 1895. In Paris he was solo flutist (1897–1905) of the Colonne Concerts and the Paris Opera, and he taught at the Schola Cantorum. He was solo flutist (1905–28) of the New York Symphony Orchestra. He joined the faculty of the Institute of Musical Art in 1905 and of the Juilliard School of Music in 1930. The Barrère Ensemble, which he founded in 1910, was expanded (1914) into the Barrère Little Symphony. His virtuosity increased the importance of the flute as a solo instrument.
