ExpoForum supports the concert of the post-modernist duet, In-Temporalis
The new concert program of the St. Petersburg duo, In-Temporalis, which performs classical music into a modern interpretation, will be held May 18 at the Smolny Cathedral. This is also the group's start of a grand tour around Russia that will last until the spring of 2012.
During the press conference with Polina Fradkina (piano) and Yoel Gonzalez (percussion) the musicians talked about future projects. Conceptually, their work is a fusion of different styles, and they seamlessly merge the classic with Afro-Cuban, Brazilian and other ethnic rhythms. Mr Gonzalez has about 30 various percussion instruments, including obsolete ones, in his arsenal.
Ms Fradkina said that, ''music, including classical, should not be a museum piece,'' and thus they are constantly looking for new sounds and trying to rethink them in creative ways, yet preserving the essence of the original composer.
Mr Gonzalez thanked ExpoForum for supporting the concert and expressed his hope that the company will continue to be interested in his duo's work.
