9780198161950: Playing the Viola: Conversations with William Primrose
Review:

an excellent book ... fascinating information concerning the viola in all its aspects ... David Dalton is to be congratulated on his questioning, the style and content which he puts forward often entices Primrose into much deeper water than was anticipated but it adds spice to the nub of the question and brings out some extra and revealing asides ... Chapter 4 'On Practising' is probably of the greatest value to the student and I suggest that each one should read and study its contents and ponder over the advice offered, it is plain and honest speaking and excellent instruction ... a very good entertaining and instructive book for all viola players and others. ( Harry Danks)

The instrument's supreme spokesman and his ideal collaborator - together they have brought us a work of rare insight and commitment. My special thanks to Mr David Dalton for his unique contribution to the viola world. ( Michael Tree, Guarneri Quartet)

a loving and brilliant composite of the man, his art, and his humanity, and a meticulously detailed analysis of his technique ... A tremendous contribution and a much-needed affirmation of our own best instincts. ( Karen Tuttle, Juilliard School of Music and Curtis Institute of Music)

If Lionel Tertis was the first protagonist, Primrose was certainly the first star of the viola. ( Yehudi Menuhin)

The format of the book not only breaks down the technical matters into easily digested sections but also makes reference easy. The photographs and musical illustrations are invaluable ... these conversations can give us an insight into his understanding and love of the instrument and his great contribution as a performer, teacher and transcriber. Thank you David Dalton ( Jennifer Paterson, Music Teacher)

will be read with pleasure and profit by players and teachers of all bowed string instruments ... We are indebted to Dalton for capturing in print so much of the wisdom and inspiration of this trail-blazing artist. ( Christopher D.S. Field, Galpin Society Journal, XLVI)

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
