"La Vega" depicts the view over the plain of Granada, as seen from the Arabian palace, the Alhambra. The attractive landscape inspired Alb‚niz 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 we have reproduced in their complete form in our Urtext edition. Thus, the player is afforded a unique insight into Albeniz' compositional methods.
