“The concert of Madame de Lussan . . . was fairly attended . . . but the hall was so cold that the singers and the audience were almost perished.  Madame de Lussan was in excellent voice and sang with spirit and effect, both in her solos and in the concerted music. We have rarely heard Madame de Lussan to better advantage. Signor Forsati, as usual, sang excellently well, his style and voice being specially adapted to concert singing. Miss Smith is a young singer of very good promise, of whom we shall probably have more to say by and by. Madame Krolikowski played some piano selections very acceptably to the audience.”

Review: New York Post, 05 May 1866.

“The concert given by Madame de Lussan . . . was a fair success as regards the performance and attendance. Madame de Lussan, Miss Smith and Signor Fossatti sung excellently, and were well received, as was also Mlle. Kroliskowska [sic]—the pianist—who played two very difficult pieces in an artistic and acceptable manner.”
