Prelude no. 27 'The Devil's Thrill'

Frédéric Chopin's Prelude 27th prelude was reconstructed from a series of sketches on which he worked during his stay in Majorca. Jeffrey Kallberg, a professor of music history at the University of Pennsylvania, reconstructed it and gave it this nickname for its similarities to Giuseppe Tartini's violin sonata known as 'The Devil's Trill', Tartini being a likely influence on Chopin.
