Multiple Grammy Award-winner and MacArthur Fellow Chris Thile, a member of Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek, is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist. With his broad outlook that encompasses classical, rock, jazz, and bluegrass, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.

Awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (aka “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.  In August 2013, Thile released Bach: Sonatas & Partitas, Vol. 1, then in September 2014, Thile and renowned bassist Edgar Meyer released their latest album collaboration, Bass + Mandolin, which won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album in 2015 Punch Brothers released their latest album, The Phosphorescent Blues, in January 2015.

On this new program, Thile performs Bach solo violin works on the mandolin, as well as his own compositions and contemporary music.
