Camilla Urso’s Concert. 

The second concert of this talented young violinist was given last night at Niblo’s Saloon, before a fair audience, large, considering the weather. She played selections from Vieuxtemps and Allard in that style of delicate perfection which has been so fully recognized and appreciated by the best audiences of the city. The Fantasie Caprice is certainly one of her most successful interpretation, for in it all the beauties of her style and the depth of her sentiment are most fully developed, and she approaches nearer to a largeness of manner than in any other piece in her repertoire.

Madame Varian has a sweet, clear and effective voice, and sang a quaint little ballad in a piquant and charming manner. Mademoiselle Teresa Carreno played a Nocturne by Chopin with much grace and finish. The new singer, Mr. Coradi Colliere, has more humor than voice and more gesticulation than style. He would probably be effective on the stage, but in the concert room he is far from successful.

Madame Urso’s third and last concert takes place at Niblo’s Saloon on Monday evening next, Feb. 27.
