Victoria Concert Hall

Moscow-born pianist Zlata Chochieva first came to international attention with her highly-praised recordings of works by Chopin and Rachmaninov. Her Chopin Complete Etudes disc was selected as an Editor's Choice in Gramophone, and, of all the Chopin recordings ever made by the best-known pianists past and present, 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). Taught by Mikhail Pletnev and Jacques Rouvier, Chochieva has been consistently lauded for her probing honesty and imagination to go with her limitless virtuosity.
 

This November, she brings her distinctive musicianship to Singapore for the first time. Her two overlapping programmes will see her breathe purposeful life into the works of three great pianist-composers she loves – Liszt, Rachmaninov and Friedman – who themselves reinvented revered masterpieces from the past through their creative piano transcriptions. Their wondrous richness surround Ravel's picturesque Miroirs and Scriabin's epic, soul-searching Third Sonata.
