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

Zlata's previous recording for Piano Classics (Rachmaninov Piano Sonata 1 and Chopin Variations) 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).
