Review: New York Post, 08 February 1869.

“Mr. Theodore Thomas’s orchestra also gave a good concert last night at Steinway Hall. It was well attended, as it deserved to be.”

Review: Dwight's Journal of Music, 13 February 1869, 400.

“Mrs. Farnsworth (soprano) and Mr. Martens (pianist) assisted upon this occasion.  Of the former I have already given my opinion.  Mr. M. played Mendelssohn’s well known ‘Rondo Capriccioso’ in quite a turbid way, but seems to be possessed of some considerable mechanical dexterity.”
