- Duo Concertante (after Helen Frankenthaler) First performance on the 1st of September 2022 at Lukaskirche Kirchensaal, Luzern, Switzerland by Samuel Nebyu (violin) and Charles Abramovic (piano) as a part of the Summer Festival of Lucerne Festival 2022 Grey Fireworks is a work that is a response to a painting of the same name by the American abstract expressionist Helen Frankenthaler. The composition, like the painting, moves quickly through various moods, colors, and gestures. The immense motion, choice of colors, and seemingly improvisational burst of bright hues of the painting enabled the composition’s structure and capricious quality that certain gestures have in the work. Grey Fireworks was commissioned by the I & I Foundation for Samuel Nebyu (violin) and Charles Abramovic (piano) as part of the Summer Festival of Lucerne Festival 2022.
