About 'Asturias (Leyenda)'
Albéniz, Isaac (biography)
1860 , Camprodon, Catalonia
1909 , Cambo-les-Bains, France
Spanish pianist and composer best known for his piano works based on folk music idioms. Many of his pieces such as Asturias (Leyenda), Granada, Sevilla, Cádiz, Córdoba, Cataluña, and the Tango in D are amongst the most important pieces for classical guitar.
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!
