Piano Has Become A Rare Musical Instrument To Be Played
The piano is an acoustic, stringed musical instrument invented in Italy by Bartolomeo Cristofori around the year 1700, in which the strings are struck by hammers. It is a large keyboard musical instrument with a wooden case enclosing a soundboard and metal strings, which are struck by hammers when the keys are depressed. The strings' vibration is stopped by dampers when the keys are released and can be regulated for length and volume by two or three pedals. When it comes to ladies we have rarely seen that they can also play this nice piano and indeed Lola Astanova is one of those rare ladies.
Creation of Piano
The invention of the piano is credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655–1731) of Padua, Italy, who was employed by Ferdinando de' Medici, Grand Prince of Tuscany, as the Keeper of the Instruments. Cristofori was an expert harpsichord maker, and was well acquainted with the body of knowledge on stringed keyboard instruments.
Lola Asanova And Her Early Life
Lola Astanova is born to an Uzbek family, at the age of six Astanova entered the V. Uspensky Specialized School of Music for Gifted Children, an elite school in Tashkent, present-day Uzbekistan where she was born, raised and started studying piano under Professor Tamara Popovich. She frequently visited Moscow, studying at the Tchaikovsky Moscow State Conservatory for lessons with Professor Lev Naumov, who described Astanova's pianism as
"rare and truly ingenious" adding that "Chopin performed by Lola is simply outstanding."
Astanova started touring as a concert pianist at the age of eight which is just fantastic. She has performed in Germany, France, Austria, Italy and Russia in both solo programs and performances with orchestras. In the month of November she has long list of touring again for performances, the tickets are sell on her website. She became a laureate at the 1996 International Chopin Competition for Young Pianists in Moscow. In 1998, she was featured in the UNESCO documentary "Prodigies of the 20th Century". In 2003, she immigrated to the United States; her debut there was at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, the following year.
Since her first days in the United States, Astanova has forged an exhilarating career offering classical music lovers an invigorating alternative to artistically stifling and boring classical music scene. Using new media to communicate with her fans, Astanova has singlehandedly redefined what it means to be a modern-day virtuoso. Through her videos many have discovered the music of Chopin, Liszt and Rachmaninoff for the first time, and Lola's own original virtuoso transcriptions have become a YouTube and Instagram sensations.
Her first American break came in 2007, when Lola starred in a $1.6 million Neiman Marcus Classical Superstars Fantasy Concert, which also featured the Kirov Orchestra and was hosted by ABC’s Regis Philbin. The concert garnered unprecedented attention of the media and became a testament to Lola’s ability to attract a wider and younger audience with classical repertoire. The connection to Neiman Marcus was logical one for Astanova, who takes a fashion-forward approach to her personal style, and can often be seen gracing the society and fashion pages in exclusive designer creations.
But it is her passion for performing, reminiscent of the Romantic age virtuosi, that remains Lola's greatest love. It is fitting, therefore, that her 2012 Carnegie Hall debut paid a rich and profound debt to her Romantic roots with a special Tribute to Horowitz concert. The concert, hosted by Dame Julie Andrews, became a historic occasion as Astanova delivered a triumphant performance in front of a sold out crowd.
Since her Carnegie debut, Lola has given countless concerts across country with the leading American ensembles, including her notable collaboration with the All-Star Orchestra. Their Visions of New York documentary, featuring Lola’s performance of Gershwin’s famed Rhapsody in Blue received the 2016 EMMY® Award.
Since achieving acclaim, Lola has used her talent, time, and influence to support and bring attention to various charitable causes helping to raise funds for cancer research, New York’s 9/11 memorial, and constantly encouraging her fans to support local art and education initiatives.
