Review in The New York Times:

The third Sunday night concert at the Metropolitan Opera House was given last evening. The audience was large and bursting with applause. There was plenty of work done which merited generous recognition, but the encore fever threatened to become annoying until a wise majority put an end to it by an emphatic hiss. The programme was an interesting and agreeable one. Sembrich sang Proch's "Air and variations," in which her brilliant vocalization was well displayed. She was heartily applauded and gave, as an encore piece, a ballad. She was heard later in the evening in "Ich Liebe Dich" and "Some Day," two melodious ballads, which she sang tastefully. Signor Campanini, who was welcomed to the footlights with great enthusiasm, sang the "Cujus Animam," from Rossini's "Stabat Mater," and "O tu che," from "La forza del destino," in his customary artistic and effective manner, moving the house to a storm of applause with each song. Mme. Trebelli gave a graceful rendering of an air from one of Mercadente's forgotten operas, and responded to a recall with the "Habañera" from "Carmen." Mme. Fursch-Madi sang Gounod's "Ave Maria" agreeably, and Mme. Lablache was heard to advantage in "Ah, mon fils,"" from "Le Prophète." Signor Guadagnini succeeded in singing two notes of the "Sei vendicata" in tune, and Signor Mirabella sang a "Noel" by Adam. The "Rigoletto" quartet was well given by Mme. Fursch-Madi, Mme. Trebelli, Signor Campanini, and Signor Del Puente. The orchestra gave an incoherent performance of Wagner's "Kaisermarch" and played effectively an easy gavotte for strings by Mattioli and Ritter's "La Zamacucca."
