Anniversary Season Grand Finale 

05/15/2016 - The most vibrant American city, Miami celebrated its symphony orchestra's 10th anniversary at the Arsht Center tonight, with Lola taking the stage to perform a Mozart concerto, followed by a powerful classical/rock encore for piano and electric guitar.  "Lola Astanova...thrilled the audience with her flawless presentation", wrote the Venue Magazine.  The concert also marked the season's grand finale for one of the most innovative classical ensembles in the country.  (Photo credit:Rafael Mantilla)

Lola plays Mozart 

04/10/2016 - The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts was the venue.  Mozart concerto No. 20 was the composition.  And wearing a red Alexander McQueen gown, Lola had closed the season with the Palm Beach Symphony in grand style.  "Astanova's performance of Mozart was light and precise", wrote a critic,"Her technique was solid, quick and seemed very appropriate for Mozart".  But it was Lola's innovative encore, her rendition of Liszt's La Campanella accompanied by an electric guitar, that really delighted both the audience and the experts, "Her Liszt encore gave a glimpse at what could have been a captivating, experimental and fun program".

Lola's epic "Freedom" rocks Miami 


03/20/2016 - Sunday night at the Arsht Center in Miami was extraordinary: for the first time in her career Lola took the stage not only as a piano virtuoso, performing her original rock arrangement of the famed La Campanella by Paganini-Lizst, but also as a composer and songwriter.  The Miami Symphony and a multi-talented group of artists, which included the Rock & Roll and Grammy Hall of Famer Sam Moore, closed out the show with an epic performance of Lola's original rock anthem Freedom, bringing the sold-out "Miami Rocks" crowd to their feet!

Pure Russian Music 


05/04/2015
- It was all about purity and beauty of the Russian music as Lola once again collaborated with the great Gerard Schwarz and the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra at the Clay Center.  The two concerts and one matinee performance were greeted with an "an extended ovation" from the audience that turned up in large numbers to see Lola perform for the second season in a row.  The previous collaboration with maestro Schwarz and his Emmy-winning All-Star Orchestra was the recording of Gershwin's famed "Rhapsody in Blue", which will be released later this year.  Click HERE TO WATCH THE TRAILER.

  • This prelude (Op. 3 No. 2) was one of Rachmaninoff's most popular pieces. And it is one of my favorites. There is so much hate and anger in the world today... this piece is a heartbreak for better days ...

  • In the mood for something different and fun this Fourth of July weekend. Was watching Notting Hill the other day (it was my 301st time!!!) and thinking this song might have been the reason.😌I just love that moment in the movie when Hugh Grant's character is walking around the square and nothing feels the same ... (Song by Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine.)
