Although best known today for his orchestrations of Debussy’s music, André Caplet was a prolific composer of songs with imaginative instrumental accompaniments.

This recital opens with his early ‘Viens! Une flûte invisible soupire...’, clearly influenced by Debussy, explores rarely performed works by Philippe Gaubert, and by Frank Martin, and includes the première of a new work by Judith Weir.
