Bach: Sonatas and Partitas Vol 1
By:David Honigmann

Former boy-wizard Chris Thile has lent his mandolin virtuosity to Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers, and now looks back to Bach. Anyone expecting his trademark lightning-fast runs will be surprised: on the whole he takes the G minor and A minor sonatas and the B minor partita at a stately pace, but the corrente passage of the partita shows his full dexterity.
