Mateo Albéniz, also known as Mateo Antonio Pérez de Albéniz (1755 – 23 June 1831)—no relation to the better-known composer Isaac Albéniz—was a Spanish composer andpriest. He held a post as Maestro de Capilla in San Sebastián and in Logroño from 1795 to 1800, when he returned to San Sebastián until his retirement in 1829.
Albéniz wrote chiefly for the harpsichord and fortepiano. The work by which he is best known today is the Sonata in D major, of which a popular transcription for guitar has been made.
