Mondavi Center Presenting Program


Chris Thile, of the Punch Brothers, is a mandolin virtuoso, composer and vocalist. With his broad outlook that encompasses progressive bluegrass, classical, rock and jazz, Thile transcends the borders of conventionally circumscribed genres, creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.

Recently awarded a MacArthur Fellowship, 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. Punch Brothers, described by The Times of London as “brilliant, audacious, original and, above all, entertaining,” released its latest album, Who’s Feeling Young Now?, in 2012 on Nonesuch Records. In August 2013, Thile released Bach Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1, also on Nonesuch Records. On this new program, he draws from his new Bach recording, while also exploring his own compositions and contemporary music.
