Jacob Klein (Jacobus Hermannus Klein) Born: 14 October 1688 — Amsterdam

Died: buried 8 March 1748 — Amsterdam


Although the fortunes of eighteenth century Dutch composer Jacob Klein are certainly rising in terms of recordings, he remains a rather obscure figure. Klein was a cellist who lived in Amsterdam and published 36 sonatas variously for oboe, violin, and cello; only the ones for cello have survived. One relatively new bit of information about him is that Klein was an amateur musician who came from a musical family; his father was a famed dancing master in Amsterdam and his uncle was composer Carolus Hacquart, and rightly Klein was called "Jacob Klein, the younger" in his publications.

He wrote and published a total of 36 sonatas for varying chamber combinations: oboe and figured bass, violin and figured bass, cello and figured bass, and for a pair of cellos. Only three sets of six have survived to the present, and the seven selections here are taken from these. Klein didn’t just toss off these works as a side interest, as many amateur musicians. He created meticulously-designed works of some imagination, with a clear tonal and metrical plan. His music is lively and flexible, with interesting interweavings of lively dotted rhythms and contrasting cadences. All the sonatas are in different keys - the composer evidently had something in mind like Bach’s WTC, but since we have only part of them Klein’s overall plan is not clear.
