Madame Teresa Carreno gave her third concert at the Berlin Singakademie with even increased success on February the 13th. Her rendering of Chopin's Pianoforte Concerto in E minor is said to have been excellent. She was also most successful in an Andante Favorè in F, by Beethoven, and "Der Vogel als Prophet" and Toccata by Schumann.

Neue Berliner Musikzeitung 44, no. 6, March 6, 1890.

Teresa Carreno wird am 13. Februar in der Singakademie ihr letztes Concert in dieser Saison unter Mitwirkung von Frau Amy Sherwin veranstalten. Die Künstlerin spielt Chopins E-moll-Concert und ein neues Klavierconcert von Max Dowell [sic].
