Russian pianist Zlata Chochieva first came to international attention with her highly-praised recordings of works by Chopin and Rachmaninov (Piano Classics), establishing her as a distinctive voice amongst pianists with a deep affinity with these composers.
Zlata has appeared at many prestigious concert halls and festivals, and with numerous major orchestras and conductors, incl. Mikhail Pletnev who became her mentor at an early age.
In 2019/20 Zlata will be appearing as “Artist in Focus” in three different programmes with the Aachen Symphony Orchestra as well as making her debut with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Solo debuts include the Vienna Konzerthaus, Vancouver Chopin Society, Brussels Chopin Days, as well as a second Wigmore Hall recital and various appearances at festivals across Europe and the US. A return to the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra will see her participate in the orchestra’s Tchaikovsky Festival with performances of his piano concerto no. 1 and piano trio.
