Adam Fendt sings Pagliacci: Nein, bin Bajazzo nicht nur ... Ah, wenn du sagst, dass ich deiner unwert, with Bettina Bruckner, Karl Kronenberg, Kurt Marschner and Günter Ambrosius

After studying voice in Frankfurt, he had his first contract at the opera theater there in the 1939/40 season. 1940/41 Kaiserslautern, 1941–43 Mannheim, and 1943–49 again Frankfurt. Though he sang in Düsseldorf 1949/50, in Wuppertal 1950/51 and 1953–55, and in Dortmund 1952/53, he always stayed connected to Frankfurt, where he was a regular guest, as well as in Munich and Stuttgart.

Frankfurt was also where his voice was preserved, in numerous recordings for the local radio station.

Fendt had two specializations: lieder on the one hand, Italian opera on the other, particularly lirico-spinto roles (Manrico, Radames, Alvaro, Turiddu, Canio and so on).
