"La Vega" depicts the view over the plain of Granada, as seen from the Arabian palace, the Alhambra. The attractive landscape inspired Albéniz to compose this delicate, impressionistic work with an almost meditative character. Claude Debussy was so impressed that he would have liked to have visited the place immediately. "La Vega" has survived in two very different versions, both of which Henle has reproduced in their complete form in this Urtext edition. Thus, the player is afforded a unique insight into Albéniz' compositional methods.
