Roles that he sang during this period, in addition to Fidelio, included Parsifal, Lohengrin, Siegmund in Wagner's Die Walküre and Max in Weber's Der Freischütz. Later in his career he sang Verdi's Otello. He taught singing in Stuttgart after retiring from the stage in the 1950s.
He made many recordings of operatic arias, duets and scenes. These recordings are now available on CD. They capture the warmth and sensitivity of his singing during its prime and confirm his reputation as one of the finest Germanic tenors of the 20th century.
