Sound Tracks | Tom Harrell Performs "Passepied" (Debussy) | PBS

Duration: 02:34
Program: Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders (Pilot)
Broadcast Date: Jan. 9, 2012

The Passepied from Debussy's Suite Bergamasque is probably one of the composer's most recognizable tunes - but you might not recognize it here. It's been slowed down quite a bit and re-harmonized - and right before this violin solo, it's just shifted out of a Brazilian bossa-flavored blues.
