,,Keka, fascinates with the emotional and physical strength
that are obviously the strongest steam for her to deal sovereignly with the
very demanding works, this time with the imposing sonata in h-moll of the great Franz Liszt.., which she overcame with an inexplicably easy approach the ingenious artistic nature of Liszt..”
,,..that sublime artistic act of visible exposure of very
detailed performed music score was obvious for Mimoza Keka, she with her own artistic fanaticism conquered that grandiose Liszt’s challenge called the
terrible Sonata in h-moll, to which even more experienced piano masters do not come close because it is really too difficult to perform..”
“Her performance is distinguished by a clear and creative imagination, with a precisely crafted dynamics, articulation, rhythm and an exceptionally well-built pianistic technique…”
“Pianist Keka gave the audience an emotional night with her music..”
