The article concerns fascination with music and how events of George Sand's life affected her work in the years 1831-1851. Admiration of Don Giovanni by Mozart, affection for Musset and Chopin, theatrical and musical improvisation at home in Nohant were reflected in the genesis of some novels of that time ('Lélia' and its two versions from the years 1833 and 1839, 'Le Château des Désertes' in the form of a short story from 1847 and a novel from 1851, 'La Prima Donna', a short story from 1831, published in 1840, 'Consuelo'), and in the concept of some characters (Stenio from Lélia). The character of Don Juan often features in George Sand's works, yet, Don Giovanni comes first. It looks like the mask trio in that opera was the object of Chopin's fascination.
