To be sure, Peter Hofmann is not forgotten, especially at Bayreuth. On August 6, 2016, Friedon Rosen in Der Neue Merker wrote of the opening of Parsifal at the Bayreuth Festival:
We have Schager! Perhaps the best Parsifal since Peter Hofmann. . .
At Bayreuth the Austrian Heldentenor Andreas Schager substituted for Klaus Florian Vogt. It was a debut filled with potential…. He recalled the days f the 70s and 80s with the legendary Waltraud Meier as Kundry and Peter Hofmann as Parsifal.
