Fly the Coop: Bach Sonatas and Preludes

Fresh off their recording collaboration for Fly the Coop, acclaimed virtuoso flutist Emi Ferguson and RUCKUS, the six-member continuo band, offer a lively and wild romp through some of Bach’s most playful and transcendent works.These idiosyncratic performers reimagine Bach for 21st-century fans of 18th-century performance practice. According to Emi, this is Bach “infused with equal parts tradition, funk, whimsy, and fun.”

Post-concert Q and A

“Emi Ferguson led on Baroque flute … with a Romantic, even operatic, emotiveness. Every bit as expressive, the five-piece Baroque band” Ruckus brought continuo playing to not simply a new level, but a revelatory new dimension of dynamism altogether.” —The Boston Musical Intelligencer
