Angelo Gilardino made an arrangement which is much closer to the recorded Malats version.

JB's version is based largely on the one we know as Tárrega's but the ending in particular is closer to Malats in that it maintains the triplet configuration. It's complicated - Tárrega's manuscript notes are in the Leckie collection, Llobet made a more complete version while Segovia appears to have "borrowed" from both rather than make his own transcription. Severino Garcia Fortea's had meanwhile made a version (Union Musical Espanola) which is more faithful to the piano i some places; the triplet ending that you hear Bream perform for instance.

There is a work transcribed by Azpiazu - Serenata Andaluz.
The first movement of "Impresiones" works about as well on guitar as the second; I sometimes pair them up in performance. I have been unable so far to lay my hands on the third and fourth movements though I have scoured several Spanish libraries.
