Carl Frei's Dutch Masters
By Matthew Caulfield

(No, not about cigars)

I sent the Keller-Kern list of Carl Frei music masters to Fred Dahlinger, curator, Circus World Museum, Baraboo, Wisc., at his request. He phoned to say it came and explained the absence of Dutch tunes from the list (which someone here noticed) thusly. Frei was deported as an alien from Holland at the conclusion of WWII and was forced to leave behind all his Dutch production. All of that is now lost, its whereabouts unknown, if it still exists. What survives as the Keller-Kern archives is the work Frei did after the war in Freiburg i. Breisgau.
