Notes & Reviews:

Zlata about her new album: "For my third album for Piano Classics I chose the complete Etudes-tableaux by Rachmaninoff, music close to my heart. I always feel immensely fortunate to perform these masterpieces of a composer whom I whole-heartedly adore. Rachmaninoff composed most of his works, including the Etudes-tableaux, at his family estate in Ivanovka, 600 km south of Moscow - he returned there each summer for more than twenty years, a habit only put to an end by his emigration in 1917. I visited his house there this August to absorb its special atmosphere, and to experience the inspiration and magical spirit which must have made this incredibly peaceful land such a joy and place of refuge for him. It is a great privilege to be able to experience these worlds that the Tableaux present, full of emotional poetry, romantic beauty, painful tragedy, darkness and light, and a boundless love for Russia." Zlata Chochieva's discography includes two CDs with "Piano Classics" Label. Her recording of Rachmaninov's Variation on a Theme of Chopin and First Sonata received outstanding reviews in several prestigious classical music magazines including "Gramophone", "Fono Forum" (5 star review) and "Piano News". Her recent disc of the complete Chopin Etudes with the same label has been nominated for the "The German Record Critics' Award" (Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik) and was selected as Editor's Choice in Gramophone: "Zlata is the possessor of a comprehensive technique who brings an inner glow to every bar. Her playing is indelibly Russian in its fullness and warmth, backed by a dauntless and easy command" (Gramophone) "Zlata Chochieva, a pianist's pianist" (Musicweb International)
