“Teresa Carreno’s concert tonight should be remembered by the lovers of piano-forte music; the marvelous little girl has vastly improved since her last public appearance.  She will be assisted by excellent vocal talent.  The concert takes place at Dodworth’s.”

Review: New-York Times, 18 April 1864, 4.
Just a brief mention in an announcement for her second concert on the following Monday, April 18, 1864.  Carreño was to be “assisted by the same artists who made the event of last Friday interesting to their friends.”
Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 18 April 1864, 5.
“[A] brilliant example of digital dexterity on the piano, in the person, not of a grown artist, but a little girl—Teresa Carreno. . . . An arm of wonderful vigor, allied to hands of the utmost flexibility, and a superior musical organization, are the endowments which she brings at a tender age to delight her audiences.  She attacks with the energy of an adult the difficulties of Thalberg and Liszt, and executes them neatly and clearly.  Altogether a most extraordinary performance.”
Review: Musical Review and World, 23 April 1864, 135.
“Little Teresa Carreno has returned to us, very much improved, physically as well as musically.  In her first concert she was assisted by Mrs. Kempton, Mad. Mixsell, and Messrs. J. Farley (tenor), H. Draper, (baritone), and Chase (bass).”
