The Obras para clavicordio o piano forte is one of two surviving collections of keyboard music by Sebastián de Albero (1722-1756), organist of the Real Capilla in Madrid from 1746 until his death. The Obras are dedicated to King Ferdinand VI and Albero conceived them as a gift for being appointed organist and as proof that he deserved the position. They are structured in six "triptychs", each consisting of three movements: a Recercata (unmeasured prelude), a Fugue and a Sonata. As a complement to the edition, a collection of six intentos or fugues is included, which appears copied in some manuscripts from the end of the 18th century. This collection presents versions of five of Albero's fugues included in the Obras, along with an intento or fugue by José Teixidor (1751-ca. 1814).
