Chopin's Scherzo no. 3 was connected to his legendary winter in Mallorca in 1838/39, as were his Pr‚ludes op. 28. On 22 January 1839, the composer sent the autograph of the latter work to Camille Pleyel in Paris, and at the same time announced further works that would soon""flood" the recipient of his letter, including the Scherzo no. 3.
