Ballade No. 2 in F major, Op. 38, was composed from 1836 to 1839 in Nohant, France and on the Spanish island of Majorca. Robert Schumann, who had dedicated his Kreisleriana, Op. 16, to Frédéric Chopin, received the dedication of this Ballade in return. There is some degree of disagreement as to its inspiration, with the claim often made that it was inspired by Adam Mickiewicz’s poem Switezianka, the lake of Willis.
