Ruckus is a “shapeshifting” Baroque band with a fresh, visceral approach to early music, formed by some of today’s leading soloists of this repertoire. Their collaboration with acclaimed English-American flutist Emi Ferguson, recorded for Ruckus’s acclaimed debut album, Fly The Coop, is a joyous, kaleidoscopic romp through some of Bach’s most playful and transcendent works. Savor these new arrangements of Bach’s flute sonatas and keyboard preludes that explode his bass lines into a rainbow of textures and colors, continually shifting like light over the landscape as Ferguson’s flute lines dance above.
