Music by Russell Peterson
Fargo-Moorhead Symphony
FMSO principal bassoonist (and Barking Dog Records saxophonist) Russell Peterson composed two major works over the past two years which the Symphony premiered -- Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra (Russell Peterson, soloist) and Concerto for Timpani and Orchestra (FMSO principal timpanist David P. Eyler, soloist). Both premieres received rousing audience response, and the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony recently released these thrilling pieces on compact disc!
