In the lead-up to the release of her first album on the naïve label, Chochieva returns to the US for the first time since the pandemic. She performs at the Miami International Piano Festival on 1 May and the Frederic Chopin Society in Minneapolis on 8 May, culminating in further recitals in Duluth on 9 May, Sun Valley on 13 May, and San Diego on 15 May, with a spectacular programme featuring C.P.E. Bach, Schumann, Grieg, Brahms, and Strauss. The following August sees Chochieva return to the US to the International Keyboard Odyssiad & Festival in Colorado and the Bard Festival in New York.
‘I’m glad to be back in the US after almost a three-year break due to the pandemic, and very much look forward to performing in new venues as well as returning to ones with which I have special and bright memories.’ – Zlata Chochieva
