Frank Henri Klickmann  (1885-1966)
Last updated: 02.10.17
Frank Henri Klickmann was an American composer, arranger and orchestrator of popular music. Internet searching reveals quite a number of works with which he is credited but practically nothing on his private life. He wrote in a wide range of genres from the sentimental parlour songs such as My Sweetheart Went Down with the Ship (1912 ) - no doubt cashing in on the Titanic disaster, Sing Me The Rosary (1913) and Mama can't pray for us now(1914).
His ragtime compositions include Knockout Drops: A Trombone Jag (1910), Delerium Tremens Rag: A Trombone Spasm (1913) and Paderewski Rag (1920). Other oddities range from the anti-war Uncle Sam Won't Go To War (1914) to the fiercely patriotic Old Glory Goes Marching On (1918).
Other works include accordion pieces and a concerto for tenor saxophone. In his final years he did much arranging of Zez Confrey's works.
