“Mr. Gottschalk’s concert at Irving Hall was great success artistically, a very fine affair numerically, and, doubtless, eminently satisfactory pecuniary.”
Review:New York Herald, 25 May 1863, 4.
“On Saturday the Gottschalk concerts closed with a matinee at Irving Hall, upon which occasion the popular pianist played some of his favorite morceaux. He was assisted by Mr. Harry Sanderson, who is certainly an artist of rare merit. Mrs. Abbott, Mr. William Castle and Mr. S. C. Campbell sang on this occasion, all with great success.
There is something eminently attractive to us in the voice of Mr. Campbell. We observe its great improvement, and wish to encourage the artist in his efforts for the full cultivation of one of the most pleasing baritone voices we have heard. In these days, when American artists are having such great and undeniable success abroad, we notice with more than ordinary interest all evidence of unusual talent at home.”
Review:Dwight's Journal of Music, 30 May 1863, 36.
“Gottschalk has been reveling in all his brilliancy and fascination, and, with Sanderson, Miss Krowlikowska, Mlle. Barnetche, Mr. Castle, Campbell and the Bretto children, has been giving concerts and matinées without number.”Signed TWM.
