Heiner Hopfner (Tenor)

Born: Germany

The German tenor, Heiner Hopfner, made his stage debut as a young child (Genii) in The Magic Flute, led by Georg Solti. He also sang and recorded with the Regensburger Domspatzen (children’s choir). He later studied in Munich, where he also taught music, while embarking on his own concert career.

When Heiner Hopfner won the international contests of Munich, Berlin and Geneva, his career began to transcend the limits of Germany. He appeared in England, Italy, Holland, Belgium, France, South Africa and the USA with such conductors as Karl Richter, Georg Solti, Eugen Jochum, Kubelik, Maag, Benjamin Britten and Bertini. During the late 1970’s he was the leading tenor at the Kassel State Opera. His debut in Israel was in 1979 with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Helmuth Rilling.
