PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“When the music becomes poetry, the soul expands, the self glows; It is light that shelters, provides and preserves. In this way, the heart shall be nourished.”

This phrase appears on the back-cover of this album, and it speaks for itself. The music composed for this recording was conceived to reflect the experience of feeling the poetical expression of music.

Both the titles of each piece and the conceptual structure of Poetic were envisioned as literary poems in that they contain rhythm, cadence, verse and rhyme as if they were written literature. It is a current of poetic-musical verses inhabiting a baggage of musical sequences, which turn into feelings of nostalgia, windows of silence, ballad and romance. All of this describes this vivid musical poem that nurtures our hearing as it nourishes and enriches our spirit.

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.

Glorious Piano music
This is the fourth of Darian's CD's I have owned and the more I listen the more I discover. This album is beautiful. Darian plays the piano himself proving himself to be not only a very talented composer but a truely talented pianist in his own right. The music is very relaxing - providing a lovely stress-free environment no matter what has been going on in your life. Each track has it's own beauty and are works that you cannot help but enjoy. I thoroughly recommend this album.

CD Poetic / In Silence
It touches a strange emptiness not to fill it up but to make it more intense, may the silence speak in it's own space.
