    Siegfried's forest murmurs, as sung by Wolfgang Windgassen. Sorry, didn't find a video.

    Siegfried Finale (especially with Evans and Jerusalem!!!), absolutely. This one made me really crazy to Wagner, and this last two minutes of Siegfried is IMO the best music ever composed...

    My favorite moment in DER RING? When the chicken wings arrive!!!
    Your closing key is not the same,
    This gives the Masters pain;
    But Hans Sachs draws a rule from this:
    In Spring, it must be so! 'Tis plain!


    "In Spring! In the creation of art it must be as it is in Spring!" -Arnold Schoenberg

    "I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not! But I’m sick and tired of being told that I am!" - Monty Python

    Tough call, but I'd have to say the first five minutes and the last five minutes - the only times when the gold is resting in its rightful place under the Rhine and all is right with the world.

    I think that's the leitmotif of Redemption. Definitely my favourite moment and leitmotif in the Ring Cycle also.

    I love all of Rheingold....but have now got lessened enthusiasm for Der Walkure and Siegfried...but my favourite moments come from Gotterdamerung, especially the Trio that ends Act 3, when Gunther, Hagen and Brunnhilde plot to kill Siegried. That is thrilling....
    Then, the whole of the Prologue...with the 3 Norns fiddling-about with their rope and then the ecstatic Brunnhilde and Siegfried after their night of Bliss...before Sigs is off down the Rhine.

    Just after the final curtain, before the applause (if any).

    Trolly, you are very naughty.

    But I must admit that when I watched the old Met Ring on Met player I was very glad when Hildegard Behrens rode off into the flames.

    If I was his dad I'd be saying to him: "She's too old for you lad. After all, she is your auntie!"

    Considering who his mom was, I'm not sure his dad is in any position to be giving out warnings about inappropriate romantic liaisons.

    And it's not so good to think about it like that... Siegfried and Brünnhilde are in lead in my love stories-list!

    It's all Anna Russell's fault.

    Siegfried's Funeral March and Brunnhilde's Immolation are my favorites.

    Tough call. I can't say I have a true favorite, but I found "Abendlich strahlt der Sonne Auge" from Rheingold quite brilliant!
