Ongoing Remembrances

peter-hofmann
We continue to receive tributes to Peter Hofmann’s memory and the unforgettable way in which he impacted the music world and the hearts of so many friends and fans.  An excerpt from a recent comment from Artie Matz sums up a great many of these letters:  For me he was a trail blazer and a pathfinder because he did not follow the traditional path of an opera singer.  He was the first true crossover artist.  I first came to know him in Lohengrin, Walküre  and was a fan of Phantom of the Opera.  Peter Hofmann broadened my musical horizons. Read entire tribute here.

Continuing the crossover theme of these memories, Fritz Hofmann has added some photos from Bayreuth to the classical gallery and a lovely shot of Peter at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles. Click here for Photos.

  1. Peter was Wagner’s dream tenor even before Peter was born. I had the pleasure of hearing Peter sing Wagner both at the Met and Bayreuth. He may not have been the stereotypical idea of a Heldentenor but he was magnificent and what a hunk!

  2. Just read the wonderful new book and it was so enjoyable to read. I went to Hamburg to see Peter as Phantom of the Opera and it took me eleven times to manage that. It was so worth it as Peter was the best Phantom ever. Thank you for sharing all your adventures Fritz.
