Based in New Jersey, Eric Klein is an internationally-performed composer of concert music with chamber, electroacoustic, and orchestral works performed in the United States and Europe. Klein studied classical guitar with Norbert Kraft and attended the University of Toronto and Royal Conservatory of Music. Equally versed in writing orchestral, chamber, and electronic music, he is a versatile composer for film and new media. In addition to scoring for independent feature film, his chamber music album The Myth of Tomorrow, performed by the New York contemporary music ensemble Contemporaneous, won the 2019 Independent Music Awards for Best Contemporary Classical Music Album.
Klein’s compositions have been described as “smart and sophisticated, accessible even to the untrained ear, and a cool, clever blend of things both old and new” (Classical Music Discoveries) and “carefully put together and skillful in the use of both traditional acoustic instruments and electronic enhancements” (infodad.com).
An album of orchestral works is forthcoming.
