Album Notes
Modern Chamber Music - by Darian Stavans.

Natalie Warnke - Clarinet. Darian Stavans - Piano.
St. Angelis Symphony Orchestra.


Modern Chamber Music by Darian Stavans is both an academic musical proposal and a personal perspective of our new modern classical music.


Modern Chamber Music is an academic proposal and a personal perspective of the times we live in. The compilation in this album includes works for small ensembles, duets for instruments like the clarinet and piano that establish metaphorical dialogs with each other in the Sonata for Clarinet and Piano, as well as in the fantasia for the same instruments. Later we encounter a watery flow of deliciously fresh notes in the String Trio, a Neo-romantic piece. The album concludes with a Chamber Concert for Piano in three parts that exalts the old and classical manner of writing piano concerts. In this case, however, there are modern strokes and tonalities adorning this mix of textures and forms. It is an academic conception in itself that brings remarkably fresh sounds to our day.



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 native of USA, Natalie Warnke received her musical training in Boston from Samuel Gardner and Eleanor Bridges .
Living today in Arizona, she has held a professorship at Arizona State University at Phoenix since 1992, and since 1994 has served as Clarinet Player at the Tucson Music Ensemble. International recognition was established in 1992 when she won the Arizona First Chamber Music Festival, and has grown through a recording career with two recordings. Natalie Warnke performs frequently in major international halls and concert festivals. She conducts master clarinet classes at the Arizona State University.


The St. Angelis Symphony Orchestra was created by conductor and composer Daniel Rutherford at First United Methodist Church at San Angelo, Texas in 2002. Back in 2003 began activities as an independent Symphony Orchestra and Chorus group. In 2004 Mr. David Miller was invited for the position of Director of Music Ministries for First United Methodist Church also at St. Angelo, Texas and since then the Symphony Orchestra and Chorus performs frequently in major halls and concert festivals across the US and Canada.

Modern Chamber Music (Trio)
It catches me in an instant in a dimension without time, without form. it hold me volatile in the immensity like if I would become light or molecule. The night transforms me into a starlight or a moonlight, including the space tenderly, not like a mantle but like a presence.


Rod Ellem
