, Violin Sonata in F minor Op. 4, for violin and piano was composed by Felix Mendelssohn in 1825 and is the only one to carry an opus number. Mendelssohn composed two other violin sonatas, both in F major, that are without opus numbers.
Unlike his famous violin work, the
Violin Concerto in E minor, the sonata lacks dramatic expositions, however still containing composer's calm chamber music and early-onset brilliancy.
