“Concert of L.K. in eve.  I am in pretty good voice, my throat is much improved.”

Review: New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung und Herold, 08 March 1864, 8.

“The German Liederkranz’ third musical soirée, held in Liederkranz Hall Sunday evening, offered the large audience a rich and well-performed program. The success of the opening pieces of each part of the concert, Palestrina’s Fratres ego and Mendelssohn’s ‘Lobgesang,’ sung by the mixed chorus, is clearly the result of frequent and diligent practice. The women’s choir, in particular, was impeccable. The most beautiful and challenging parts of the pieces (in which the solos by Mesdames Rotter and Paulitsch and Mr. Quint were sung with deep understanding) were performed with a precision that would bring honor even to professional singers. 

Beethoven’s trio in C major, in which Messrs. Noll and Bergner participated with their usual mastery, and a duet by Miss and Mrs. Rotter, ensured that the concert contained an interesting variety.

Conductor Paur can be proud of his achievements and the success of this concert.”
