Leipzig was to provide adegree of satisfaction that he could not find in Berlin, where he returned atthe invitation of King Friedrich Wilhelm IV in In Leipzig once more, in, he established a new Conservatory, spending his final years there, untilhis death at the age of thirty-eight on 4th November , six months after thedeath of his gifted and beloved sister Fanny.
Mendelssohn seems to have written a firstversion of his Fantasia in F sharp minor, Opus 28 , the so-called Sonateecossaise, in , before his first visit to Scotland the following year. In , after his return, he played the Fantasia to Goethe in Weimar,but revised the piece in when it was published with a dedication to thepianist and composer Ignaz Moscheles, who had given him and his sister somelessons in Berlin in and proved a useful friend during Mendelssohn's visitto London in In a key that the composer found stimulating, the Fantasia opens with a series of arpeggios, followed by the Andante principaltheme.
A more extended passage of cascading arpeggios is followed by the returnof the Andante theme, leading to a shorter concluding passage ofdecorative intensity, fading to a wistful close. The second movement, marked Allegrocon moto, is in the style of a gentle A major Scherzo, with a Dmajor Trio at its heart.
The extended final Presto is inestablished sonata form.

The repeated exposition, the first section, repletewith dramatic excitement, offers the expected two thematic elements and theseare duly developed, to return in varied form in the final recapitulation. Mendelssohn's Seven Characteristic Pieces, Opus 7, seem to have beenwritten as early as They are dedicated to his piano teacher, LudwigBerger, and reflect the study of counterpoint he had undertaken under theguidance of Zelter and his own absorption of the keyboard idiom of JohannSebastian Bach.
The first piece is a tender prelude, followed by a shift fromthe key of E minor to B minor and a change of mood from the contemplative tothe excited.
The third piece is a D major Fugue, the voices entering inimitation in descending order and proceeding to all the contrapuntal devicesthe heart could desire. The shadow of Bach is joined by that of DomenicoScarlatti in the extended fourth piece of the set, in A major, followed by asecond Fugue in the same key, with the four voices entering in ascendingorder and going on to a masterly display of counterpoint. The sixth piece, in Eminor and marked Sehns?? The Prelude, writtenin that year, makes much of its opening motif and its continuation.
The Fugue, written in , has all the impetus inherent in a form to whichMendelssohn had devoted some study and of which he again demonstrates completecontrol, evidence of the way in which he had, even as a boy, absorbed thelessons of earlier musical traditions. The Sonata Movement in B flat minor startswith a slow introduction, leading to a theme redolent of the world of Schubertand offering more rapid display.
The central development section of themovement finds a place for brief contrapuntal activity, before the finalsection of recapitulation in music of no great distinction.
