Julius Klengel here may refer to the -father- of the well-known composer: "Röntgen’s violinist father Engelbert, originally from Deventer in the Netherlands, was a member of the Gewandhausorchester and its concertmaster from 1873. His German mother was the pianist Pauline Klengel, sister of the composer Julius Klengel (father of the cellist-composer of the same name), who became his nephew’s principal tutor" (Malcolm MacDonald, brief biography of Röntgen.) The well-known Julius would have been 19 or so at the time of publication (only four years under than Julius Röntgen, at that.) Brahms attended a rehearsal of this work as early as January 1877. (Muziekweb.nl gives 1876 for composition date.)
