9780198161950: Playing the Viola: Conversations with William Primrose

Before the death, in 1982, of the renowned violist William Primrose, David Dalton engaged the musician in a lively series of conversations which touched on almost all aspects of viola technique, performance, repertoire, recording, and history. This book is a transcription of this dialogue, containing illuminating advice on holding the viola, bowing, tone, fingering, and practicing, all supported by copious illustrations and musical examples, as well as insights on repertoire for the viola--"an instrument without tradition"--and on performances of the great concertos by Bartok and Walton. Punctuated with frankness and humor, this book is a tribute to one of the greatest artists of this century.

About the Author:

David Dalton is at Brigham Young University, Utah; President of American Viola Society.

Review:


"Required reading for all violists and should be found on the shelves of every library at institutions where the viola is taught."--Notes


"This remarkable book is full of valuable information about performance problems on the viola and the methodology for their solutions....The book certainly should be required reading for all violists, and it is particularly indispensable to teachers and students of the instrument. All violists are indebted to David Dalton for making it possible to share the wisdom, advice, and many wonderful experiences of one of the musical giants of our time."--Maurice W. Riley, American String Teacher


"An invaluable reference for the violist whether student, teacher, or performer. The combination of wit and knowledge enables the reader to enjoy thoroughly the process of reading....Recommended for all who are interested in the viola and its greatest exponent."--Choice


"This volume is an invaluable contribution to the string player's bookshelf. The clarity with which Mr. Dalton has distilled the ideas of the great William Primrose forms a wonderful basis for a technical approach on both violin and viola. As one who had the rare privilege of studying and performing with the great master, it was very much like a personal visit."--Joseph Silverstein, former Concert Master of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Music Director of the Utah Symphony


"In all areas of human endeavour, time and again an individual appears who, due to a multitude of personal attributes, elevates his or her field to a hitherto unknown height. Such an individual was William Primrose. His name and the viola are synonymous."--Yanos Starker, from his Foreword

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1990. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In all areas of human endeavour, time and again an individual appears who, due to a multitude of personal attributes, elevates his or her field to a hitherto unknown height. Such an individual was William Primrose. His name and the viola are synonymous. Janos Starker This unique book is the result of a series of conversations with Primrose in the last years before his death in 1982. David Dalton describes how he came to the great artist armed with every question he could think of pertaining to performing on and teaching the viola. The lively dialogue contains a wealth of illuminating advice for the student on the technicalities of playing the viola. It is, however, far more than a technical guide. The two violists discuss the unique position of their instrument - an instrument without tradition is Primrose s bald description. They cover the topic of repertoire with fascinating insights into the performance of the great concertos by Bartok and Walton, with which Primrose was so closely associated. Still more invaluable advice emerges from the discussion of Primrose s own experience, on the art of performance, on demeanour on stage, on competitions, on recordings, and on preparing for a career. The book is a tribute to one of the greatest artists of this century. Nº de ref. de la librería AAU9780198161950
