Description: Kapellmeister at Magdeburg Cathedral for 43 years, all of Ruhe's compositions are lost except for these five gamba works. Probably written in the 1730s, they are lively, forward-looking pieces in three and four movements (the suite has eight) which anticipate early Classical style. Sándor Szászvárosi (viola da gamba), Kousay H. Mahdi Kadduri (cello), Angelika Czismadia (harpsichord).
