Rondeau spoke about his love for music and his desire to investigate music of all kinds, providing a historic musical background on the harpsichord and discussing the influence of composers, including Bach and Scarlatti. Rondeau also addressed the differences between music for harpsichord and piano, and the technique needed for each instrument.
