This is stage one of the seventh game in the "Favorite Recordings Of..." project. The goal here is to nominate recordings for Wagner's Ring cycle. Separate participants may nominate the same recording several times, but the same person may not.

Nominations end after 7 days, or 1 day of inactivity. and we will vote on all works nominated. You may nominate up to 5 works, but you may only post nominations once. Note that we have made some changes to the overall system, you can see a summary here. Please include the name of the conductor, label, year, and group (if applicable). Example:

Barenboim: 2009 Warner/BFO
