Ballade No. 3 in A-flat major, Op. 47, dating from 1841, is dedicated to Pauline de Noailles. The inspiration for this Ballade is usually claimed to be Adam Mickiewicz's poem Undinė, but sometimes reported to be Mickiewicz's Świtezianka; There are structural similarities with the "Raindrop Prelude" which was inspired by the weather in Majorca during Frédéric Chopin's disastrous vacation with George Sand.
