“The possessor of a comprehensive technique who brings an inner glow to every bar ... Poetic and pianistic command could hardly go further.” — Gramophone

Born in Moscow in 1985, Zlata Chochieva began her musical education at the age of four, studying piano with Nina Dolenko at Flier Music School. In 2012, she graduated with distinction from Moscow State Conservatory under the instruction of Pavel Nersessian. Chochieva went on to participate in master classes with many world-renowned professors, including Pavel Gililov, Pascal Devoyon, Dmitri Bashkirov, Paul Badura-Skoda, Abdel Rahman El Bacha, Jerome Lowenthal, and Stephen Kovacevich. She now lives in London.
