Early Music Band, Ruckus, with Emi Ferguson

800 Bagby Street, Suite 300

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.

“A fizzing, daring display of personality and imagination”

“Panache, and the jubilant, virtuosic verve of a bebop-Baroque jam session”
