Catalogue Note

An intriguing letter relating to some of Mendelssohn’s earliest publications. Not all the works can be fully identified. The String Quintet in A major (MWV R21) was published by Simrock as Op.18; the Piano Trio is not known. There is no publication of Romanzen für’s Piano. This refers to the Songs without Words, Op.19b. The religious works are Aus tiefer Not, Ave Maria and Mitten wir im Leben, Op.23.
