Cossmann uses this as a Π marking.
Mendelssohn slurs the whole bar.
Mendelssohn: f only.
'Tucking-in' slurs added.
Slur and line added.
Mendelssohn slurs from c' to a, with the g separated.
Slur added, creating a small portamento.
An audible shift which may intensify the approach to the ff in the next bar.
The same-finger shifts in this and the following two bars (and the parallel passage later in the movement) are not expressive, although they do ensure an absolutely continuous legato with no string-crossing; this fingering minimises the distance of each shift.
