As a performer, editor, antiquarian, teacher, and all-around ambassador, Felix Mendelssohn occupied himself with Bach's organ works his entire life. This chapter sheds new light on Mendelssohn's activities in this domain, with special emphasis on the all-Bach organ recital that he played in the city of Leipzig in 1840. In addition, it explores the Bach reception of two of Mendelssohn's organist-colleagues, Carl Ferdinand Becker and Johann Gottlob Schneider.

Keywords:   Bach, Becker, Leipzig, Mendelssohn, organ, reception, Schneider
