op.47 - Ballade No.3

by Chopin
Expert Difficulty
A-flat major
Ballade No. 3 in A-flat major, Op. 47, dating from 1841, is dedicated to Mademoiselle Pauline de Noailles.[1] The inspiration for this Ballade is usually claimed to be Adam Mickiewicz's poem Undine,[2] but sometimes reported to be Mickiewicz's ?witezianka;[1] The true inspiration for this piece remains unknown. There are structural similarities to the so-called "Raindrop Prelude" which was inspired by the weather in Majorca during Chopin's disastrous vacation with George Sand. These include a repetitive A-flat which modulates into a repetitive g-sharp during the c-sharp minor section.
