Friedrich Schröder (August 6, 1910 – September 25, 1972) was a German composer of what could be referred to as light music.

Career[edit]

Born in Näfels, Switzerland, Schröder studied music in Stuttgart, Münster, and Berlin. Already in those early days he wrote film scores. For a short period between 1934 and 1937 he also worked as a Kapellmeister. He composed a number of operettas and Schlager, many of which have been popular ever since.

Schröder died in West Berlin, aged 62.
