SPECIAL NOTICE. To avoid the rush at the door at the matinee ladies should purchase their tickets previous to the concert at the Hall.”

Review: New-York Times, 10 April 1870, 5.

“Concerts have been numerous during the week just closed. The most important have been the Patti concerts, the first of which occurred on Wednesday night at Steinway Hall. The success then achieved was repeated Friday and at a matinée yesterday. The violinist, Sarasate, is unquestionably an artist of eminence, from whom it would be pleasant to hear, however, pieces demanding greater breadth of style and less dexterity. The good impression made by Mr. Henry Squires has been deepened, and it will be politic, we think, to assign to that gentleman, whose voice is sweet and cultured, and whose expression is faultless, a more liberal share of the night’s work than has yet been accorded. Of Miss Patti, and of Messrs. Ritter, Ferranti and Hermanns, it is of course unnecessary to speak, so familiar is the public with the talent of the trio. Yet we cannot but believe that the variety of their resources would be more clearly shown were the repertory drawn by each of them more extended.”
