Description: Published in 1718, these are probably the first cello sonatas by a Dutch composer. Not only that: Klein uses scordatura tuning in them (one tone higher than normal) and they are full of harmonic surprises, whiplash changes of mood and tempo and generally rich in invention. Pavel Serbin (cello), Alexander Gulin (cello), Hans Knut Sveen (harpsichord). Caro Mitis SACD hybrid
