Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 26 February 1866, 5.

     “The Apres-Midi Concerts of Mr. Hopkins are becoming very successful. At the last, Wallack’s Theater was crowded from the parquette to the very top of the house and crowds of ladies were still standing tip-toes in the lobbies. Mr. Hopkins played some of his recent compositions, which were very meritorious, somewhat too wildly fantastic, perhaps, but possessing good points both in melody and treatment. He played infinitely better than we ever heard him play before; his execution was cleaner and generally more certain and effective. The arrangements for two and three pianos were well made sand played, and produced good effects. The Indian March from L’Africaine, was skillfully arranged and told well with the audience.  If Mr. Hopkins would bear in mind the one golden rule, to play slower, he would make double the impression in his performances. Mr. Hopkins was assisted on this occasion by Madame De Lussan and Mr. Holder, who has a pleasant voice and sings with taste and expression.”
