PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


"Prayer" is a pure and clean act exempt of the religious concerns that distract our minds. Prayer springs from inert simplicity. The purest and most abstract act of prayer brings about faith in ourselves and in those whom we love.

Prayer is a resource and a force we all carry within that induces us to reflection… to touch the essence of life. “Prayer” is about the intimate and private conversations we constantly hold with ourselves, conversations that bring us closer to true love and generosity. The walls we believe we tear down to reach others reflect and authenticate our own mirror. Later we discover that when we pray we love ourselves, and this makes us care about ourselves and others.

"Prayer" is such a secular act of prayer and reflection.

ABOUT THE ARTIST


Evocative is a word that has been used to describe, or better said, react to the music of Darian Stavans. Evocative? One would imagine that such a music would bring to the mind and heart shared memories, but one does not necessarily share memories with an artist; one shares feelings, reflections, dreams. These are the things one finds in the music of Darian Stavans— a passage of sorts to that special place we all have deep in our souls.

The apparent simplicity of works such as Interiors, Passion, and Poetic is powerfully touching and intensely beautiful. Captivating melodies hold our attention as their notes drop ever deeper into the soul of the listener, retrieving echoes of the human experience we all share. Our lives may be different, but our feelings are not. Stavans’ music glides us soothingly into currents of profoundly romantic reverie, pools of sunlit serenity, and occasionally into the depths of fleeting melancholy.

Stavans, the composer, imbues his music with texture: a guitar lends its sometimes earthy, sometimes airy quality to Els Segons Temps; whereas a lighter, more translucent harp is used to render Lullabies. In making his music come alive, Stavans has also become a producer (he produced all the works featured here) and a conductor. He conducted and recorded the St. Angelis Symphony Orchestra for his works Noir et Blanc and Prayer.

Nonetheless, Darian Stavans is first and foremost a gifted composer and pianist. His music speaks his soul and in so doing, speaks to our own. Perhaps listening to his works we might become acquainted with the artist, but it would be more accurate to say, we become reacquainted with ourselves.

A real balm for a stressed out soul.
On the way down to Virginia, I played "Prayer" and "Noir et Blanc" in the car. Such good traveling companions. A real balm for a stressed out soul.
Thanks again.

Music the engulfs you
Stavans has created a work that wraps you up in its sounds and rolls you gently along with it. It is Minimalist in it's construction but very relaxing and beautiful.
