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