Star Wars: If It’s Not Baroque…

Richard Grayson is a famous composer and pianist who is known for his ability to improvise any melody and play it any style, or tempo. Forgive me music geeks as I may be mistaken so feel free to correct me here, but here are his improvisations on the Imperial March and the Star Wars theme song in a Baroque Gavotte, similar to the style of Beethoven.
