'La plus belle interprétation des deux Sonates pour violon à ce jour' (Répertoire, France)
Marjorie Haywood (1886–1953), who gave the first performance of the Violin Sonata No 1, was a leading chamber music performer of the day and a teacher at the Royal Academy of Music. To her Ireland dedicated his Bagatelle of 1911, a charming and witty example of his music in a lighter vein.
