Fred also composes his own songs and music on his restored classic Toronto built1883 Mason & Risch piano which he rescued in parts from the Hamilton, Ontario, Grand Opera House just before it was demolished in 1961. Among Fred's piano compositions was this one recorded around 1997. In this sample we hear the opening strains of his three-part concerto-style Rhapsody.
