On Tuesday, Punch Brother and mandolin virtuoso, Chris Thile, performs the tunes from his brilliant new (completely) solo album, Bach: Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1 (Amazon MP3 & Spotify) at Carnegie Hall. Last week, Thile posted this jaw-dropping fifteen-minute stationary camera video of the full “Sonata No. 1 in G minor” – also the first four tracks of the new album. Mind blown at “Presto” (11:48 onward in the video and the fourth track of the album). Damn! I scored some tickets, so stay tuned for the recap.
