Georg Riedel, Swedish musician (composer and double bass player). Riedel was born on Janyary 8, 1934 Karlovy_Vary, Czechoslovakia but came to Sweden at age four and went to school in Stockholm.

The most famous recording featuring Riedel is probably Jazz på svenska, a minimalist-jazz compilation of folk songs recorded in 1962-1963 together with Jan Johansson.

Riedel's fame as a composer derives almost exclusively from writing much music for Astrid Lindgren movies, including the main theme from the Emil movies.
