Lola Rubio, Violin
Lola Rubio is a French violinist from Paris. She began her studies at the age of nine and studied with several professors before being awarded a place at the Cologne Academy of Music and Dance in 2012 for her Bachelor degree with Ariadne Daskalakis, graduating in June 2016. She has attended several solo and chamber music master classes with renowned professors and has played in different youth orchestras around Europe and worldwide, including the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie and the European Union Youth Orchestra, before her 2014 internship with the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne. Lola Rubio’s interest in New Music was awakened quite early when she first had the opportunity to work with a French composer, and her affinity for this way of working has only grown since. She has had the honour to have chamber music and solo works dedicated to her and fellow students and loves discovering and bringing to life the music of her time. Very interested in politics and social subjects, she has been an active supporter of an independent children’s orchestra in Guatemala since September 2015. Lola plays a violin made by the French maker Charles Brugères in 1886.
