At the Vancouver Playhouse
The Vancouver Chopin Society presents Zlata Chochieva
The Vancouver Chopin Society begin their season with the Vancouver debut of the young Russian pianist, Zlata Chochieva, whose recordings of Rachmaninoff’s Études-Tableaux and Chopin’s Etudes astounded the musical world.
In the words of a musical giant, pianist Stephen Kovacevich, Chochieva is “one of the most interesting and unusual pianists today.” Her recording of Chopin’s Etudes was included in Gramophone magazine’s list of “50 Greatest Chopin Recordings,” alongside recordings by legends such as Cortot, Pollini and Rubinstein. The reviewer calls the disc, “one of the most consistently inspired, masterfully executed, and beautiful-sounding versions I can recall.” For her Vancouver audience, Chochieva will be playing Chopin's Etudes Op. 25 in the first half and piano works by Rachmaninoff after intermission.
Come and find out why musicians and critics alike have been running out of superlatives in describing the artistry and pianism of this spectacular young talent.
