from a review in Robert Schumann’s Neue Zeitschrift of a piano recital
Miss Amalie Feracci showed herself as a pianist should not be. Her playing was unclean and of greatest frivolity; with the help of limited study and unlimited use of the pedals she drew from the piano wonderful, never suspected harmonies. The first piece presented was by Herz. Who doesn't know the glorious variations on the Othello march? Herz built an imperishable monument to himself with them; whoever doesn't believe it should take the same in hand and, afterwards wash himself with fresh water, followed by heavy towels. Short pieces of Hoffman and Varina are to be recommended, if your constitution can stand them. I have forgotten to report that Miss Feracci has beautiful black eyes.Stephen Heller [1813–1888]
