Gerhard Trede & Historical Documentaries

Gerhard Trede, one of the great composers of the 20th century, would have turned 105 years old this year. He was the in house composer of two German newsreels – the “UFA Wochenschau” and the “Neue Deutsche Wochenschau” – for 30 years. He is also well-known for his genre crossing film music.

His singular music remains indispensable for all sorts of historical documentaries. It perfectly complements such subjects as WW1 or the time periods of the 40s and 50s in an authentic and historically accurate way. Even today, the music of Gerhard Trede is used in numerous high-end productions around the world.

Sonoton is proud to reissue one of Trede’s albums called  "Early Last Century – Drama”, SCDV 708. The album includes 40 of his original tracks – remastered and completely authentic. Hear for yourself!
