Emil Klein was a Romanian cellist and conductor. He was a precocious child, beginning lessons on the cello at the age of four, studing at the Liceo di Musica di Iasi, the Ciprian Porumbescu Conservatory in Bucharest and concluded his studies with cello virtuoso David Geringas in Hamburg, Germany, where he relocated in 1978.
Emil Klein began his career as a cellist, initially scoring successes as a chamber music player, then as a soloist and recitalist.

He eventually turned to conducting and founded his own orchestra, the Hamburg Soloists, a group consisting of about 15 members. He performed with them both as a conductor and cello soloist and led them in numerous, often highly acclaimed recordings for Arte Nova Classics.
