Johann Sebastian Bach: Transcriptions for solo mandolin, arr. Chris Thile
Chris Thile: Various selections
Chris Thile, of Punch Brothers, is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist. With his broad outlook that encompasses progressive bluegrass, classical, rock and jazz, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.
Recently awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (a.k.a. “Genius Grant”), in February 2013, Thile also won a Grammy® for his work on The Goat Rodeo Sessions, collaborating with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Stuart Duncan. On this new program, Thile draws from his new Bach recording, while also exploring his own compositions and contemporary music.
