Martin Hoepfner
Martin Hoepfner was born in Leipzig in 1961 and studied guitar at the town’s Musikhochschule with Thomas Buhé between 1982 and 1986. Having graduated with a diploma in instrumental teaching, he has been coaching musicians at the Leipzig music-school ‘Johann Sebastian Bach’ since 1986. Between 2002 and 2008, he held a teaching position at the University of Leipzig and has continued this role at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Leipzig. A freelance performer, he is engaged in diverse activities as a theatre and orchestra musician. Thus, he appeared (and continues to appear) at the opera houses in Leipzig, Gera, and Halle, as well as at the Semperoper in Dresden, the Dresden Staatsoperette, and the theatres at Görlitz and Freiberg/Döbeln. In 2000, he joined the Robert-Schumann-Philharmonie Chemnitz on their tour to New York, where they performed Kurt Weill’s opera ‘The Eternal Road’. He is also a freelance contributor to the MDR (Central-German broadcasting station). He performs contemporary works, both as a soloist and with chamber music ensembles. Concert tours have seen him appear in Poland, Switzerland, Austria, as well as at Houston, Dallas, and New Orleans, where he performed the programme ‘Frejlich un gesunt’ in 1995. Since 2007, he has enjoyed a close partnership with Kammersänger Martin Petzold (Oper Leipzig). They have given many performances as Petzold & Hopefner, for example in Kiev, Houston (Texas), and Paris. Further information at
