A pupil of Tino Pattiera in Vienna, he began at the Vienna Volksoper in
the 1956/57 season. 1957–62 at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein (Düsseldorf and Duisburg), 1962–64 in Karlsruhe,
from 1964 to his death in Zürich.|
He sang exclusively small parts and was so successful in that repertory that he made lots of guest appearances, primarily in Germany, but also in Athens, Paris (Opéra-Comique) or Rome. His specialty was contemporary music, and he sang in many world premieres and Swiss premieres.
