Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 30 October 1863.

“The concert of Mr. Gottschalk met with the customary favor which attends these entertainments. The performers were, Miss Lucy Simons who sustained the exceedingly favorable and flattering impressions of her previous debuts. The pieces she gave were feats of good vocalism—difficult, florid, bravura compositions. Young Mr. Sanderson grows constantly in force and sentiment under the superior influences with which he is surrounded. Mr. Gottschalk has stereotyped triumphs now, and little or nothing new remains to be said of him. The other performers in the bill were Mr. J. R. Thomas and Mr. Theodore Thomas.”

Review: Courrier des États-Unis, 02 November 1863.

    "Gottschalk completed the musical week with two very beautiful concerts, which have again confirmed the impressions of which I spoke a week ago concerning the new development of his skill. In the second of these soirees (Thursday), M. Theo. Thomas played a violin fantasy that also revealed in him a more and more substantial progress. Unfortunately, the heavens conspired against these popular Saturday matinees: the second was no less damp than the first."
