These manuscripts were discovered in 1872 in a Vienna library. In 1977 it was discovered by holding the manuscripts to the light, that the name "Luigi" had been written over the name "Carl", but was also discovered that the ink used to inscribe Luidi over Carl was the same ink used by the librarian in 1872. Whoever is the true composer, Ludwig or his brother Carl, the works are more the calibre of Ludwig's, unless Ludwig was forging his name over the years to that of his brother....interesting.
