Mendelssohn's Organ Repertoire

(p.104) Chapter Six Mendelssohn's Organ Repertoire
Mendelssohn and the Organ

Wm. A. Little

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows that Mendelssohn's repertoire for the organ was remarkably small; other than his own works, it was limited to a few of Bach's free organ works and several chorale preludes. There is no evidence that Mendelssohn had anything more than the most superficial knowledge of — or interest in — organ literature, except for Bach. Similarly, there is no record that he ever played a single organ work by any composer other than J. S. Bach or himself.

Keywords:   Mendelssohn, organists, organ music, organ repertoire, J. S. Bach
