Romantic Works Featuring Ren Ford
OAK TEN RECORDS
henson's first collection of classical compositions is an astonishing record inspired by the repetition & simplicity of the likes of Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass & Henryk Gorecki with instrumental influences from Keaton's long-time idols, Elgar, Vaughan Williams & Saint-Saëns.
Tired & full of thought, among new songs about touring, staying indoors & lost love, Henson found himself writing quiet, instrumental pieces. As they began to build up, he decided he would teach himself the art of orchestration & arrangement, despite his inability to read or write music. using his knowledge of how to craft a pop song, these pieces grew into 'Romantic Works': a stunning collection of works for cello, woodwind and piano. Dubbed "bedroom classical", the album was recorded entirely in Keaton's small bedroom in London, together with close friend & guildhall virtuoso cellist Ren Ford.
