In Spanish it's from the "Seis Piezas Sobre Cantos Populares Espanoles" and it's the 6th piece called Zapateado.

 

Has anyone played it, if so what difficulty level would you place it, ie G 7/8 or Diploma, etc.

 

Thanks for any help,

The Edexcel difficulty list gives it as a Grade '9', which means that one of the exam boards has set it for a post-Grade 8 exam at some point.

It's on the Trinity Advanced Performance Certificate list, which is aimed at G8+

andante_in_c and dorfmouse: 

Thanks for this and especially for the EdExcel information which I did not know even existed.  Rather disappointing that there is only one Chopin piece (and that is an arrangement).

The Granados is one of the pieces that I'm taking for the Trinity Certificate which is supposed to be at G8 level, but I think some of the pieces are beyond that.
