Henri Busser studied the organ and composition at the Paris Conservatoire and won the Prix de Rome in 1893. He returned 28 years later to take up the professorship of composition, by which time he had established himself as an operatic conductor and composer of fifteen operas. His compositional style is said to be sophisticated and his orchestration finely crafted "....but remaining faithful to 19th-century French tradition."
"Asturias, sur des Th''mes Espagnols" to give it its full title, is named after a region on the North west coast of Spain. Originally written for oboe and piano, and now out of print for that instrument, the piece was transcribed for alto saxophone by Marcel Mule and published in 1946. It begins with a very Spanish sounding stately dance in 9/4 and as the piece progresses through various time signatures and tempo changes, it sounds increasingly French.
