Tales of Hoffman

Tales Of Hoffmann is a series of 13 one hour programs produced by Philip O’Brien and Jim Mooney and introduced by Len Power.  It details the musical journey of Bill Hoffmann, a story which is truly the history of classical and other music performance scene in Canberra.

For over 60 years, Bill Hoffmann was an important influence on the local music scene as both participant and critic.  Best known in his role as music critic for The Canberra Times from 1962 to 2009, Bill Hoffmann was also musical director of the Canberra City Band for 28 years and actively involved in music education in ACT schools and at the Canberra School Of Music.

In this series, narrated by Bill Hoffmann himself, you’ll hear not only some remarkable and entertaining music, but you’ll also be enthralled to hear the history of  the changing classical musical scene of a young city, Canberra, as it develops a world renowned musical identity of its own.

When Bill Hoffmann recorded these musical reminiscences for ArtSound FM several years ago, he entitled the series Tales Of Hoffmann.  It was an obvious choice, not just because Offenbach’s opera of the same name was a personal favourite.  What is interesting is that E.T.A Hoffmann, the 19th century German musician whose short stories inspired the opera, was also a music critic and a protagonist in the opera’s narrative.

‘The Tales Of Hoffmann’ is a special Canberra Centenary program and has been restored from the archives of ArtSound FM 92.7.
