Carl Frei List and Friberg Passing
By Matthew Caulfield

Just to make sure I didn't lose anyone from the list of those who requested the Kern-Keller list of Carl Frei tunes, here are the names I have: Conant, Deland, Jamison, Rhodes (Robbie variety), Rutoskey, and Yost.
The vast majority of titles are in German, so it will be helpful if you can read the language a little, so that, for example, you can recognize "Fruhlingstimmen" as Strauss's "Voices of Spring." Even then it's a grab bag (at least for me) with titles like "Cowboy Jimmy" or "Rosamunde" or "Das Karussell." By the way, the figure 3880 for one of the tune counts was my typing error; it should instead be 380.
On another, sad subject: It was a shock to learn of Claes Friberg's sudden death. I never had the pleasure of meeting him myself, but my wife, who is also Danish, was warmly received by Claes and his rather new wife a year or two ago on one my wife's trips "home." I had some questions for her to put to Claes, and he not only answered them but extended gracious hospitality to Mrs. Caulfield, when she appeared at the Friberg doorstep with only a phone call of advance warning.
