The success of Carreño’s first concert only makes the expectations of this one greater.
Review: New York Herald, 01 December 1862, 5.
Mostly about the 11/25 performance. “Carreno has appeared to large audiences with great success.”
Review: New-York Daily Tribune, 01 December 1862, 3.
The concert “resulted in great satisfaction to the audience. . . . Not only does Miss Teresa get over the keys in tough music, with remarkable dexterity for her years, but she plays with a meaning, sentiment, expression, greater than would seem possible at her age.”
Review: New-York Times, 01 December 1862, 8.

     “Miss Teresa Carreno’s second concert at Irving Hall on Saturday evening, confirmed even more strongly than her first the purely artistic claims on the community which this marvelous young player possesses. There are many performers who can boast of strength, and a few who have her execution, but it would be difficult to mention another who has her exquisite perception of musical thought, her delicate sensibility to form. These things, which come to her by nature and not by application, give her a position which no other juvenile performer on the piano has ever commanded. Being also of a kind that insures instant recognition, they explain the furore which already exists concerning this singularly gifted child. The programme, aside from Miss Carreno's performances, introduced some admirable pieces by Mme. D'Angri. Mr. William Castle, Mr. Theodore Thomas and Mr. F. Eben--artists, of whom it is unnecessary to say more. Signor Abella assisted with his usual ability as a pianist and conductor.”
