BERND ALDENHOFF, Tenor, * 14 June 1908 Duisburg, † 08 October 1959 München.

25 Jan

German Heldentenor.
Bernd Aldenhoff was not only one of the last heldentenors, but also one of the most interesting. Knappertsbusch called him the most “human heldentenor” of his time. As an interpreter, Aldenhoff was, without a doubt, the most precise and sensitive Wagner tenor of his generation. He died in Munich on 08 October 1959 at the peak of his career from food poisoning.
