Rachel Podger's Bach

Music critic Tom Manoff has been listening to a new recording of Bach's music performed by English violinist Rachel Podger. She performs using a Baroque violin with strings made from gut. This allows listeners to hear Bach performed as Bach himself would have heard his music. The CD is called Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1.
