Mintcheva/McArthur Piano Duo will present an eclectic program of solo and four-hand piano works exploring the duality of human nature and life, from the demonic to the angelic, from the wicked and depraved to the holy and wholesome. The music invites you to revel in the temptations of Mephistopheles (Mephisto Waltz), The Serpent (The Serpent’s Kiss) and The King of the Elves (Der Erlkönig), and to feel absolved in the purity of the BlessSed Spirits (Ballet from Orfeo) and The Angel (Milonga del Ángel).
Dr. David McArthur has taught piano and theory both at the university level and privately. An avid collaborator, McArthur has performed with various chamber groups, as well as with the Fort Collins Symphony, Cheyenne Symphony, and Opera Fort Collins. He specializes in the research and performance of 20th-century piano repertoire, with a special focus on composers such as William Albright, Frederic Rzewski, William Bolcom, and Mason Bates. He has helped audiences gain a deeper appreciation of new works through innovative programming and informative in-concert talks. Dr. McArthur is currently on staff at the Colorado State University Department of Music, Theater, and Dance, where he serves as Music Director for the Ballet Division. He is also Music Director at First Baptist Church in Loveland, Colorado.
Dr. Miroslava Mintcheva has been featured in numerous recitals and competitions. In 2009, she won the 12th Simone Belsky International Piano Competition in Hartford, Connecticut, and in the same year gave her New York debut at Merkin Concert Hall as the second prizewinner of the American Protégé
International Piano Competition. She was also a finalist in the 2009 International
Web Concert Hall Music Competition, and a semi-finalist in the 2013 Liszt-Garrison International Piano Competition, as well as the 2011 Beethoven Sonata International Piano Competition. A dedicated teacher, she served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Piano at Florida Southern College. She has previously taught at the University of Colorado-Boulder, Colorado State University, and Front Range Community College.
