The four works cover a period of a quarter-century's compositional activity, with the result that one gains a satisfying overview of Klein's abilities and accomplishment. They are exemplary.

It would be difficult to name another living composer whose oeuvre offers so rich a variety, each work individual and revealing a new aspect of Klein's wide-ranging, mercurial talent.

Three of the four works are, to greater or lesser degree, parodies in that they make use of external influences - the Spanish idiom in "España", Turkish music in "Janizary Music" and a once-popular dance style in "Musique a Go-Go". Yet Klein's personality is everywhere evident. It is he who dictates the terms under which these influences are to be absorbed.
