Marshall to welcome Bulgarian guest artist for piano recital Nov. 6
Mineva is an associate professor of piano at Humboldt State University in California. Hailed by critics as a "vibrant and expressive performer who could steal the show in every concert" (New York Times) and an "energetic and lively pianist who displays power and delicacy in nuanced sensitivity along with virtuoso technique" (The Baltimore Sun), Mineva's unique approach to standard repertory, combined with the performance and dedication of works by living composers has taken her career across Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
"It is a tremendous pleasure for us to host Dr. Mineva," said Dr. Henning Vauth, assistant professor of piano at Marshall. "She is a strong advocate for contemporary music and the second half of her program is entirely devoted to works by composers active in the late 20th and early 21st century. Her jovial and personable character, combined with flawless pianistic technique and intense musical expression, allows her to present new music in an exciting, adventurous way that is enjoyable for musicians and non-musicians alike. The intimate and modern atmosphere of the Jomie Forum, where the audience sits in armchairs close to the artist, promises an exciting and special avant-garde experience."
Vauth added that there also will be some classical highlights on the program. He will be performing two Hungarian dances by Brahms for piano four hands with Mineva.
The program is free and open to the public. For further information, contact the School of Music and Theatre at 304-696-3117.
