Sonata I op. 65 in Fa minor
(Allegro – Adagio – Andante recitativo – Allegro assai vivace)

Mendelssohn was a skilled organist, and during his visits to Britain gave a number of well-received organ recitals. These often included the improvisations for which he was famous (e.g., at his recitals during his 1842 tour in London and Oxford).In an article in the magazine Musical World of 1838, the English organist Henry John Gauntlett noted:

His execution of Bach's music is transcendently great. His extempore playing is very diversified – the soft movements full of tenderness and expression, exquisitely beautiful and impassioned. In his loud preludes there are an endless variety of new ideas, and the pedal passages so novel and independent, as to take his auditor quite by surprise.
