My personal top 10 list of the best moments of Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen.
As the top 10 countdown nears its end, we arrive at number 3, and one of the most beautiful instrumental moments in all of Wagner. This part is a director's dream, as so much interpretive staging can go on, however the director wishes to go about it. As Hagen drowns trying to retrieve the ring, the Rhein Maidens' motif is played and developed. The apocalypse never sounded so beautiful.
The recording is Herbert Von Karajan's Ring, Götterdämmerung, recorded in 1966-70.
