Naïve Classics has released pianist Zlata Chochieva’s Chiaroscuro, the first of three albums on the label. Praised by The Scotsman for performing with “effortless, liquid finesse…a triumph of natural expression and unswerving musicality,” Chochieva has compiled for the album a symmetrical program of works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Alexander Scriabin. Chochieva titled the program Chiaroscuro, explaining that the works chosen “all combine both light and shade, but my original idea was to introduce Mozart as a ray of light in the apocalyptic skies of Scriabin.”
