A new spin on a classical composer.

right chord: Paul Elie—author of the award-winning
The Life You Save May Be Your Own: A Pilgrimage and senior fellow
at Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World
Affairs—returns with his second book, Reinventing Bach, which
explores the way the composer’s music continues to find new life through
advances in technology and contemporary virtuosos.
