In the same year he sang Bartolo and Gurnemanz at the Grand Opéra Paris. He made a successful appearance in 1973 at the Munich Opera Festival, and also that year he sang the bass solo part in Bach's Magnificat at the Vatican in Rome for Pope Paul VI. He was a member of the Staatsopers of Vienna and Munich and the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
