Variations on a Catalan Folk Song

Written in 1956 at the suggestion of John Williams. The theme is Canco del lladre, famously arranged by Llobet. Segovia liked all the music except the chord-tremoloed Finale. Duarte rewrote this section, Segovia expressed his delight with the result, but he never played it!
