― Seen and Heard International
Having first gained international attention with her highly-praised recordings of works by Chopin and Rachmaninov, Zlata Chochieva has already established herself as a distinctive voice amongst pianists, possessing a deep affinity for these composers in particular. Hailed by Gramophone as “the possessor of a comprehensive technique who brings an inner glow to every bar”, Zlata Chochieva has performed solo recitals and with orchestras in major venues such as the Herkulessaal in Munich, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall London, Konzerthaus Berlin, Teatro La Fenice in Venice, and Tchaikovsky Concert Hall in Moscow.
Her Chopin Complete Etudes disc for Piano Classics was selected as an Editor’s Choice in Gramophone, and included in Gramophone’s list of 10 greatest Chopin recordings: “It is certainly one of the most consistently inspired, masterfully executed and beautiful-sounding versions I can recall.” (Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone). Her 2015 CD of the Complete Etudes-Tableaux of Rachmaninov has likewise earned critical raves and been nominated for the German Record Critics’ Award.
