The ensemble makes its first trip to the Dartington International Summer School, at the invitation of oboist Nicholas Daniel. Today, Caplet’s name is known only in relation to his arrangements of his contemporary Debussy’s works, but his own compositions are highly innovative. Frank Bridge’s Divertimenti date from the late 1930s and together form his last chamber work, written in the shadow of World War II.
