At that time, Georgia was still under Soviet authority, and life was anything but placid. When Georgia declared independence in , every day became a struggle for survival and for keeping poverty at bay. That highly successful debut resulted in the invitation to tour internationally with the orchestra. In Tbilisi, Khatia took lessons with the renowned Georgian Chopin interpreter Tengiz Amirejibi, and it was during a local piano competition that she met Oleg Maisenberg.
