It was there, in adverse conditions, that Chopin completed his PrludesŒî op. 28 which he had alreadybegun in Paris. According to George Sand, the famous Raindrop PrludeŒî (no. 15) is said to have been composed during a storm on Mallorca; howe ver, other sources show that the first sketches were already made in Paris.
