     "This musical evening at Irving Hall will be one of the most beautiful programs that we have heard since the concerts of Gottschalk. Mme. D'Angri and the young American tenor M. William Castle will cover the vocal parts. The instrumental part offers us the occasion of hearing selections by Mlle. Barnetche and by M. Theodore Thomas. . . . We have already heard it said that Mlle. Barnetche is the best pianist heard in public in New York."

Review: New York Post, 19 December 1862, 3.

      “Miss Barnetche's concert last night was a happy success for this new pianist, who played several of her own compositions and several selections, amid the heartiest applause. There is such a deluge of good pianists now in this city, that a new comer must indeed play well to be appreciated.”
