Musical Review and Musical World, December 6, 1862.

The child pianist Teresa Carreno, has performed in three concerts, given by Mr. Harrison in Irving Hall. No doubt, she has remarkable talent, but some of the pieces she played were much too difficult for her, on the other hand, others were so insipid and stupid, that they are little apt to improve her taste, especially as they were received with the same applause as all others. We still think, it would have been better for the future of the child, not to appear in public just now.
