Premiere Recording of Keaton Henson’s Six Lethargies Now Available From Mercury KX
Jan. 01, 2020
The world premiere recording of Keaton Henson’s Six Lethargies, performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, led by Mark Knoop, is now available from the Mercury KX label. This recording has been hailed as “unbelievably beautiful” and "delicate, elegant, haunting, and masterful, all at once." The work explores themes surrounding anxiety and depression. Henson’s struggles with depression are well-documented and, in addressing the issue head-on with his largest composition to date, he has told his story through the music allowing the orchestra to be his voice, as well as providing human connection and insight into the condition.
