Chopin’s 24 Preludes Op. 28 were originally published in 1839 and are a set of short pieces for the piano, one in each of the major and minor keys. He wrote them between 1835 and 1839 partly at Valldemossa and partly at Majorca where he spent the winter of 1838–39 and where he had fled with George Sand and her children to escape from damp Paris weather. This Prelude Op. 28 n.7 is written in the style of a Mazurka tempo Andantino in A major. The manuscript carries a dedication to the German pianist and composer Joseph Christoph Kessler. The French edition was instead dedicated to the piano-maker and publisher Camille Pleyel who had commissioned the work for 2,000 francs the equivalent of $30,000 nowadays. The German edition was instead dedicated to Kessler.
