      Bach: (Violin) Sonata No 1 in G minor, BWV 1001 (14:38)

      Chris Thile, mandolin

      Nonesuch Records releases an album of three Bach works recorded by mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile. Thile explains his connection to the composer: “Bach was my first meaningful experience with, for lack of a better word, classical music. It was the second recording of Glenn Gould playing the Goldberg Variations. Gould plays with the kind of rhythmic integrity that I had previously only associated with non-classical music. It humanized the whole thing for me and the heavens opened up and Bach came down.”
