In-Temporalis Begins its Russian Tour in St. Petersburg

On May 18 St. Petersburg's Smolny Cathedral concert hall was the scene of a concert by the duet, In-Temporalis. ExpoForum and the St. Petersburg Gas Forum sponsored the event. This marked the launch of In-Temporalis' tour of major Russian cities.

Works by world famous classical composers, such as Grieg, were performed, as well as works by Rachmaninov, Bach, Beethoven, and Rossini. However, the musicians made their own postmodern interpretation. Their creative alliance attempted to establish a natural interaction of classical piano and ethnic percussion rhythms. This supreme art of performing and constant creative search is the secret of success for Polina Fradkina (piano) and Yoel Gonzalez (percussion). Their musical experiments are bold and provocative, and therefore evoke a controversial response in music critics. The duet’s admirers were full of applause and the musicians made several encores.

ExpoForum general director, Anatoly Erkulov, shared his impressions after the concert: “In-Temporalis is an excellent example of how two gifted people create new art through hard work, a strong desire, and inspiration. I follow their creative development with great interest, and I enjoyed every minute of their new concert program”.
