Tom Harrell Performs "Sainte" (Ravel)

Clip: Season 1 | 5m 53s

"Sainte," Ravel's first published composition, was originally written for a vocalist. Tom Harrell says he hears French composer Eric Satie in this piece, and tries to bring out Satie's 'saintly' quality in the music. But after starting out in a prayerful mood, this saint isn't above getting a little funky.
