     “Mdlle. de Katow and Mr. Wehli. These celebrated and popular artists will appear at Irving Hall this evening. Mr. Wehli will play two of his wonderful left hand pieces and other selections. We need not repeat what we have so often said in favor of Mr. Wehli. He is unquestionably a great artist, and will have a large audience.”

Review: New-York Times, 13 April 1865, 5.

     Mlle. de Katow and Mr. James M. Wehli gave an excellent concert here last evening.  The lady played several of her agreeable tunes in a pleasant and popular way.  Mr. Wehli has rarely been heard to greater advantage.  His left-hand performances are really surprising; but beyond this, and preferable to our taste, are the particular productions from the gentleman’s own pen-morceaux that possess merit of the nicest order and are played invariably with unfaltering delicacy, and the just amount of strength.

     Mrs. Behrens was the vocalist of the evening.”
