Hofmann was born in Karlsruhe in 1922. He started his
musical career in 1939 as violinist of the Gewandhausorchester.
Following several years of interruption due to the war and
captivity he acted as concertmaster in Darmstadt, Kaiserslautern
and Salzburg. In 1959 he became artistic leader of the Palatine
chamber orchestra. Since 1987 he lives as composer in Mannheim.
His activities as violinist and conductor were influencing
his style of composing; he is explaining this style in his
book "Goldener Schnitt und Komposition". His works
include all musical genres, from opera to chamber music.
