Every concert of Astanova is an unforgettable show. Prague will be no exception. A lot of surprises await the public: Lola believes that classical music should not turn into a museum or herbarium, nor its performer into a “key presser.” However, Lola’s interests are not limited to the classics. For example, she prepared her own interpretation of the band Queen's hit, “We are the Champions,” Rihanna’s song, “Don't Stop the Music,” and the Christmas classic, “JingleBells.” Not only is Astanova a virtuoso pianist and a talented arranger, but also a composer. It is entirely possible that the guests attending her Municipal House concert in Prague will be lucky enough to hear some of Lola Astanova's own works.
