Farid al-Atrache - Hekayet Gharami Overture
فريد الأطرش - إفتتاحية حكاية غرامي
Farid often worried about the decline of the oud in middle-eastern music, his concerns about the dearth of young talent (professional or otherwise) lead him to include an excerpt of Asturias in the overture to his song Hekayet Gharami. His hope was to reinstate the versatility of of the oud even as a lead instrument in classical western compositions.
You can here a solo version of this (with better audio) at 3:49 in this video.

My favourite cover of this jazz standard was pulled from a video recording on youtube of this song being performed live at el Sakkia Culture Waterwheel.
