Among his [Ysaÿe] compositions are six sonatas for solo violin, one of which, the fourth, he dedicated to Kreisler. Philip Newman, an outstanding fiddler and a pupil of Ysaÿe, told me that he stood outside the bedroom door on the day Ysaÿe died in 1931 and played this sonata to him. He was afterwards informed by Antonine Ysaÿe that his father opened his eyes when he heard the violin and at the end of the first movement murmured ‘Very fine!’ During the finale Ysaÿe tried to beat time and when the sonata came to an end he said, ‘Splendid!- but a little too fast.’ Those were the last words he spoke.
