The immensely talented young mandolinist, Chris Thile is in the process of recording the Bach Violin Partitas and Sonatas. The first volume was released on Nonesuch Records in 2013. Thile’s interpretations sound, refreshingly, as if he is making things up as he goes. I think Bach would wholeheartedly approve!
Here’s a treat: Chris Thile live at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland, Oregon on 10/2/2013. Here he performs the complete suite of Bach's Partita No. 1 in B minor.
