Greek translation:syzeuxi
Explanation:
Hi Efstathia,

As Kon said earlier, it all depends on the totality of your context. Thus, the above phrase is open to multiple interpretations. Here are some:
Η σύζευξη/εναλλαγή/μείξη ετερογενών περιόδων ήταν ιδαίτερα πετυχημένη.

Alternatively, you can completely recast your sentence to read:
H διασταύρωση διαφορετικών ιστορικών αναδρομών [...]

Explanation:
Διασταύρωση - Intersection

Η διασταύρωση των διαφορετικών περιόδων υπήρξε ιδιαιτέρως εντυπωσιακή.

You can also use the word "πετυχημένη" instead of "εντυπωσιακή".
πετυχημένη=shrewed, clever
εντυπωσιακή=impressive
