He composed scores for a number of ballets, including two of the most popular of the time: “Agnes DeMille’s Rodeo” (1942) and Martha Graham ‘s “Appalachian Spring” (1944), for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. That winter Chopin, Sand, and her two children traveled to Majorca in order to get away from the city and to avoid some unpleasantness with Sand’s previous lover.
