CD Review: Chris Thile – Bach: Sonatas and partitas Vol.1
VOCALIST and virtuoso mandolin player Thile has been a guiding light in Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers, groundbreaking purveyors of American folk-rock over the past decade.
Now he reinterprets Bach’s solo violin pieces for mandolin to stunning effect. His finger work is as extraordinary as the variety of textures he coaxes from his instrument.
An album to lose yourself in.
