is a popular Spanish sixteenth-century dance tune, arranged by Achron in 1913. Liszt composed a piano piece based on the same theme (S252a, in two versions), and although Achron made arrangements for violin and piano of two other Liszt piano works in the same year (Gnomenreigen
No 3) his version of La romanesca
makes no mention of the Hungarian composer (despite being listed in some Achron sources as an arrangement of Liszt).
