Through Rose Colored Glasses

“Through Rose Colored Glasses”
(Composed and performed by Reynold D. Philipsek 2015 copyright Zino-Rephi Music BMI)
Recorded by Stymie Seamans

For some listeners acquainted with Chopin you might be able to spot a fragment from his “Barcarolle.” I use this fragment to create the piece. I feel an affinity for Chopin and Slavic composers in general as I have Polish ancestry.

I take this modified fragment and proceed to touch on all 12 major keys. The trick was to do so without making it seem like a gimmick and to never interfere with the melodic flow.

I want to thank everyone who attended my last live performances of the year. The 2023 dates will be posted on by the end of March 2023.

Have a great and safe Holiday Season and New Year!
