Ruckus is a baroque ensemble with a fresh, visceral approach to early music, a “shapeshifting” band comprising some of today’s leading soloists of Baroque repertoire. Their collaboration with acclaimed English-American flutist Emi Ferguson is a joyous, kaleidoscopic romp through some of Bach’s most playful and transcendent works, with new arrangements of Bach’s Flute Sonatas and Keyboard Preludes that explode Bach’s bass lines into a rainbow of textures and colors, continually shifting like light over the landscape as Ferguson’s flute lines dance above.
