Actually, I would not claim to hear the piece that way... I am grasping for some way to understand what he is doing so I can remember the sequence better. I don’t know what it takes to change tonal center. My grasp of music theory is very primitive. That is why I wanted to understand the choice of chords in this section. Then perhaps I would recognize it the next time I see it.
I haven't listened to or looked at the piece before answering, but what you're describing sounds like he's using secondary dominants. When ending a piece very often the V7-I is used. In the case of a piece in C major G7 to C. the secondary dominant is the dominant of the V chord, which will be D7 for the G7. Cycling through the circle of fifths.
