Review:New-Yorker Staats-Zeitung und Herold, 15 February 1864, 8.
Well attended. The pianist, Mr. Pattison, played with the technical excellence of a modern piano virtuoso. He also appeared with his own original, almost pretentious, personality and demeanor. As much as we value his talent and expertise, we would prefer to do without the latter. At least for yesterday’s setting, these attributes were not appropriate. The audience would have given more attention and appreciation to his performance than to his demeanor. Ms. Tredt [sic] presented herself as a fine and promising violin player.
