La Vega represents Isaac Albeniz's compositional transformation from a salon-style composer for the piano into a composer of large-scale works employing sophisticated harmonic vocabulary and thematic development. The piece was published by A. Diaz and Cia. in San Sebastian, Spain, and was edited by an anonymous editor who copied the manuscript inaccurately. All of the subsequent publishers of the piece duplicated Diaz's printing, and consequently their inaccuracies. A new edition including the revisions that were made to La Vega as well as a publication history and catalog of editorial alterations follow.
