Composition Info:Although the version for guitar (an arrangement by Andres Segovia) is by far the most famous, this piece was originally a piano movement, used by Albeniz in his "Cantos de España". After his death a music publisher also added it to the "Suite Española" which has been the source of confusion ever since!
