Her name is Lola. She is a showgirl.

Lola Astanova is the Russian-American virtuoso pianist and composer who’s lately making noise in the classical music scene. Gifted with musical talent and sexual appeal, Lola is able to attract a wider and younger audience than many of her peers.

Who Is Lola Astanova?

Lola Astanova is remarkable for playing the compositions of Chopin, Liszt and Rachmaninoff – in sultry designer dresses and heels. During the climax performances, she would teasingly arch her back or throw her head back in seeming ecstasy, leaving a chorus of men shouting “yowza!”

In New York City, Lola Astanova made her Carnegie Concert hall debut as part of the benefit concert for the American Cancer Society. Rocking Roberto Cavalli and Marc Bouwer gowns, Jimmy Choo heels — and $850,000 worth of Tiffany jewelry — she played on the historic Horowitz Steinway that once belonged to the legendary pianist Vladimir Horowitz.

The 3,000 people who witnessed the performance were mesmerized. They asked, “Who is Lola Astanova?”

  1. She has a great attitude! Her confidence and ability to believe in her dreams is really inspiring.

  2. Sometimes I wished people followed their a dreams a little more. A lot of people just settle or try to find a “real job” due to finances  or other reasons. But everyone should do something they’re passionate about. If not, even with all the money in the world, you’ll still be miserable.

    “Never let go of your dream, no matter how unlikely it might seem, and to surround yourself with people who share that dream and believe in you.  Once you have that, the rest is ‘easy’: practice, practice, practice…” WELL SAID!

    Most of the time, we NEED to hold on! Achieving a dream is never easy. We need time, effort and “positive” people who believe in our capabilities 🙂
