Evolution of the work
The composer was evidently determined that this work should be performed one way or another. We don't know whether the work did get a performance in its original form (solo violin and orchestra), but CBR made two later arrangements.
All three manuscripts are in the Cambridge University Library:
• Op.8 No.1 Four Impressions (Killarney): solo violin & orchestra (1900)
• Op.8 No.2 Four Miniatures arranged for Piano Duet (1900)
• Op.8 No.3 Impressions pour Violon et Piano: violin & piano (1901)
