“Achingly delicate one moment, punchy and incisive the next” (New York Times)
, the new period-instrument ensemble RUCKUS can be viewed both as a rhythm section and a lively Baroque continuo composed of keyboard, lute, gamba, bass and bassoon. In a landmark glass chapel spectacularly sited on a bluff overlooking the ocean, they will be joined by prize winning Baroque flutist Emi Ferguson —a top-ten winner on the Billboard
Classical Crossover chart — whose “tonal bloom” will enhance music by J. S. Bach: three flute sonatas, a French Suite, and Preludes from the Well-Tempered Clavier.
"A fizzing, daring display of personality and imagination." (New York Times)
"Baroque band Ruckus...brought continuo playing to not simply a new level, but a revelatory new dimension of dynamism altogether. If you enjoyed the purr of professional engines rounding a familiar track before, buckle in as Ruckus revs up and spirits you off to the Formula One races." (The Boston Musical Intelligencer)
