“ELECTRIC CLASSIC” Duo
“Duet of Polyakov and Bezmenova is remarkable not only for uniqueness and novelty of their sound, but also for an exceptionally high level of performance. In addition to technical skills, both artists have a whole set of qualities that force you to listen to their play with special attention: to a rich palette, a variety of dynamic and timbre nuances, to extraordinary emotional commitment and the depth of reading the author's intention. Also undoubted advantage of this Duo is a surprisingly subtle and precise sense of ensemble”
Honoured Artist of Russian Federation
