IN-TEMPORALIS project is mixing the repertoire of the world's classical music with different ancient and modern rhythms. The main idea of the duet is unity between different national cultures. Beethoven, Chaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Grieg, Prokofiev, Ravel, Chopin are blended with the intonations, timbres, and rhythms of Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Caucasus, as well as rhythms of jazz, rock and funk. All the pieces of music are played in the versions of IN-TEMPORALIS. The duet came into the world in 2007. IN-TEMPORALIS concerts enjoy great success, they perform in the best concert halls of St. Petersburg: Philharmonic Hall, Smolny Cathedral, Mariinsky Concert Hall and other. Duet performances in more Russian locatiom and abroad (Germany, England, Norway, Finland, Greece, Armenia).

Experience offered to the audience by Polina Fradkina and Yoel Gonzalez’s duo is the bright and brave evidence of new view to the world and culture. Musicians’ view is turned to the future, yet unknown but quite visible.
