This « Gradus ad Parnassum » is an opportunity for Jean Rondeau to reflect on the notion of progress in music and its limits: whether it be theoretical, technical, expressive, or conceptual, progress allows us to approach a musical ideal while remaining inherently alien to it. Exploring this paradox from the famous Gradus of Fux and Clementi to the ironic Debussy (on the harpsichord!), provides an opportunity for a unique journey through four centuries of music.
