Notes & Reviews:

For its third disc (following a complete Onslow recording, then Koechlin), the Ensemble Initium is joined by top-flight accomplices: Laurent Wagschal and the young newcomers, the Ardeo Quartet. This program will delight lovers of French music as well as all those who enjoy discovering new colors dispensed by an eminent ensemble.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
There are several recordings of these works, and they are generally good to excellent. I feel safe in saying that Caplet is like Tchaikovsky or Poulenc in this respect: his music works so well as written that it is difficult to ruin. As a wind player I treasure Caplet's chamber works and relished hearing performances this satisfying. I hope you'll explore them, too.
