This Tango is probably the best known movement from Albeniz's Espana, originally a collection of pieces for piano. This orchestration was done by Sir Malcolm Arnold in 1953 but this is the first time it has been published. It has been played regularly on the radio in the intervening years (from manuscript copies) and is included on a Sanctuary Classics/ASV CD entitled British by Arrangement Vol.2.
