Mimoza’s new Album ”Non-Fungible” Available Now!
Artist bio for immediate release Mimoza Keka
,,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..”
