Navigation etc.

This appears to be the only work noted in Hofmeister's Monatsberichte that was published under the name Henry Largo. The Op.42 that was published under Hirschbach's own name is his String Quartet No.11 (Siegel, 1857).

Only work? Correction. See Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1885), p.190 and see there "Largo"'s Symphony Op.43. - ES (We are of course assuming that the works in question are pseudonymous, and that they are not the compositions of a Henry Largo who might have been surprised and perhaps even indignant to have his identity doubted...) ("Largo's" Op.43 in F-sharp minor if it belongs to Hirschbach is probably a 4th symphony, given that 3 symphonies of the latter's were published in arrangement in the 1840s and 1850s.)

Also, multiple people may have used the same pseudonym (or have had it used, more likely, for them by a publisher?). - ES
