Brief summary of the article 'Two unknown works by Mendelssohn?'

In the musical section of the festival production Talassio by Wilhelm Emil (Berlin: G. Reimer, 1833), Leopold Hirschberg found two contributions by Mendelssohn, noting that neither of these pieces could be found in any publication of Mendelssohn's works then available (1925). Even though he ruled out the possibility that Mendelssohn's name could have been carelessly inserted into the Emil publication, Hirschberg leaves the final decision about the works' authenticity to further research. Hirschberg speculates that a friendship between the composer and Wilhelm Emil could be the reason Mendelssohn composed music to poems of such poor quality.
