Biographical History

Dr. David Dalton (1934-) is professor emeritus of viola at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah (USA).

David Dalton was born in 1934 in Springville, Utah, to Oliver and Jesse Dalton. He received his first violin at eight years old and began his study of music. After a mission to Germany, he married Donna Glazier. He took BM and MM degrees in violin at the Eastman School of Music in 1957 and 1961 where his interest in viola was awakened by Francis Tursi. After meeting William Primrose, he switched to viola and received his doctorate in performance at Indiana University. Dalton collaborated with Primrose in writing his memoir Walk on the North Side and Playing the Viola: Conversations with William Primrose by Dalton and published by Oxford University Press. He also produced two documentaries, "A Violist's Legacy," and "William Primrose, Violist." Primrose and he were co-founders of the Primrose International Viola Archive (PIVA) at BYU, the largest and most important repository of materials related to the instrument.

Dalton's editions for viola have been published by C.F. Peters, Oxford, G. Schirmer, Eschig, Doblinger, and Rarities for Strings. His numerous articles have appeared in professional journals, such as STRAD. Dalton served as president of the American and International Viola Societies, as well as editor of the Journal of the American Viola Society. Retired, he no longer performs as soloist or chamber musician, but teaches, lectures, researches in PIVA, and pursues family history.
