Announcement: New-York Times, 25 March 1868, 4.
Review: New York Clipper, 11 April 1868, 224.

“The only interesting features were the solos of S. B. Mills and Camilla Urso. Mr. M. played in his usual admirable style, but his selections were somewhat unenjoyable. Mme. Urso was superb; the clearness, purity and unerring accuracy of her tone are beyond praise, and her bowing is delightfully easy and smooth. She was tumultuously encored and gave us a fine rendering of Ernst’s Elegie. The accompaniments were ‘done’ in a thoroughly execrable, sledge-hammer style by some one who rejoices in the euphonious name of ‘Cavalliere Paolo Giorza.’”
