Review: Courrier des États-Unis, 06 February 1865.
The day before the Italian artists came back to us from Boston, we attended an excellent concert given at Steinway Hall. There we heard a remarkable violinist, Mlle. Camille Urso. This young artiste, who doesn’t have to prove herself any more, can walk abreast of the most serious talents to whom the violin gives glory, or who make the glory of the violin. As a child, she astonished M. Auber and the jury of the Conservatoire, who awarded her a first prize. Since then, Mlle. Urso has travelled all over America, applauded everywhere, and grown in age and talent. Today, she is a charming young woman who possesses a magisterial bow-stroke and an unparalleled grace. Nothing is as sweet as an andante played by her. We don’t know whether Mlle. Urso has a plan to give new concerts in New York, but, if she makes herself heard again, we will pledge plenty of fans who won’t let the opportunity pass. One is astonished that a young woman has such strong fingers, and is able to rival the masters of the violin. Mlle. Urso has above all a gift that some of the otherwise estimable talented ones don’t always have—she plays with irreproachable accuracy!
