About this release

Even in this age where pyrotechnics seem commonplace, the
recording of Chopin’s complete Études presents a huge challenge for any pianist. Zlata Chochieva’s interpretation is a
special one: not only she conquers the daunting technical difficulties with apparent ease and supreme mastery, but she
brings out the poetry, the colours, the joy and the sorrow of each individual study, thus creating a string of 24 miniature masterpieces, rather than a marathon of technical display.

Zlata’s previous recording for Piano Classics (Rachmaninoff Piano Sonata 1 and Chopin Variations PCL0047) received high praise in the international press: “the possessor of a comprehensive technique she brings an inner glow to every bar. Her playing is indelibly Russian in its fullness and warmth, backed by dauntless and easy command…poetic and pianistic demand could hardly go further” (Bryce Morrison in Gramophone), “Glowing, perfectly modelled, full of fantasy, 5 STAR” (Fono Forum), “Zlata Chochieva is a pianist’s pianist”(Musicweb).
