In 1883 Isaac Albéniz met the teacher and composer Felipe Pedrell, who inspired him to write Spanish music such as the Suite Espańola, Op. 47. The fifth movement of that suite, called Asturias (Leyenda) is probably most famous these days in the classical guitar world, even though it was originally composed for piano and only later transcribed to guitar by Francisco Tárrega. Many of his other compositions were also later transcribed to guitar - Albéniz himself preferred Tárrega's guitar transcriptions to his original piano works.

This song has the same enduring appeal for me that songs like Greensleeves has.....I never tire of it.
