'... music making for all occasions, centred round Stella's wonderful range of timbres and instrumental technique all performers singing their multi-coloured phrases in the best chamber music traditions.' Bill Newman, Hi Fi News.

Formed in 1995 as a condensed version of Capital Virtuosi, the Capital Oboe Quintet is an exciting chamber group of top London musicians : Stella Dickinson - oboe and cor anglais, Rita Manning - violin, Bill Hawkes - viola, James Potter - cello and Helen Tunstall harp, known for their spontaneity, heartfelt expression and warmth of personality.

Programmes are chosen from an exclusive repertoire of newly commissioned works from around the world, great classical and baroque favourites, European 20th century masterpieces and crossover material from Stella's successful CD Love's Lore.

Love's Lore (CD WHL 2118) consists of 64 minutes of beautiful new music for oboe and cor anglais with varied scorings from duo with harp or cello to string octet. Based on original material researched by Stella, this CD consists of 16 British folksongs arranged by the highly acclaimed composer Paul Hart.
