    Kagel: Serenade [1994-95]

    This one was new to me, but it's another late-career gem. Very witty music - some parts made me crack a smile, which is not something I do often when listening to "classical" music.

    I'm not really sure we should even do that with the Ring, but for this one I'd really prefer either to list the saga as a single work or to list them separately.

    Fauré: Pénélope [1907-13]

    Surprised this wasn't on the list. It's got its problems, but not a bad opera by any means.

    I would list both separately, but it's not up to me.
