Chris Thile has been charting new territory for the mandolin since he was eight years old. His work with the bands Nickel Creek and Punch Brothers has established him as one of the most talented and creative musicians—regardless of instrument—working today. In this concert, the multiple Grammy Award-winner and MacArthur Fellow will perform solo violin works by J.S. Bach on the mandolin, drawn from his 2013 recording Bach Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1, as well as his own compositions and contemporary music. Praising the Bach project, The New Yorker has noted, “[Thile’s] elaborate and often stunning playing is laced with sadness but also with a wild, delirious pleasure, a piercing happiness, even a joy.”
