He also collaborated with Debussy in the orchestration of La Boite a Joujoux.

In 1911, Caplet prepared an orchestration of Debussy's Children's Corner, which, along with his orchestration of Clair de Lune from the Suite bergamasque is probably the most widely performed and recorded example of his work. Caplet was a composer in his own right, whose very innovative works have been sadly overlooked for the most part. Specially interesting is his instrumental use of the voice, as in his Septet. In 1901 he won the Prix de Rome ahead of a.o. Maurice Ravel. Caplet served as conductor of the Boston Opera from 1910 to 1914.

He was gassed while serving in the military during World War I, which resulted in the pleurisy that killed him at a young age in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
