As summer rolls around, invariably, thoughts turn to Bayreuth where Peter Hofmann enjoyed so many of his career successes. Fritz Hofmann shares this new excerpt from his book about a joke the cast of Die Walküre played on Peter during rehearsals for the Ring cycle. The accompanying illustration is a lovely oil painting done by one of Peter’s fans. You can read the chapter (# 11) here.
This month we add to Peter Hofmann’s Private Photo Gallery two images from Fritz Hofmann’s archive. (Click here.) The first shows their mother Inge standing front of the lovely house in Marienbad where Peter was born and the second depicts Fritz and Peter as boys. Enjoy!
