Awesome: The Ring of the Nibelung
The most popular among the lay public, the "Ride of the Valkyries", tends rather to be looked down upon by Wagnerians and anti-Wagnerians alike (Eric Blom once called it "the most tasteless piece of music ever written"). Among the many, many, many pieces favored by the former (the latter, of course, would favor no Wagner at all) are „Ein Schwert verhieß mir der Vater" and „Winterstürme" from Walküre, and "Siegfried's Rhine Journey" and "Siegfried's Funeral March" from Götterdämmerung.
  • Actually, many Wagnerians like "Ride of the Valkyries" just fine.
  • Let's just put the entire Ring Cycle here. All 14 or so hours of it.

  • Fricka (assuming you root for her at all) has a Crowning Moment of Awesome in Die Walküre when Wotan says "Was verlangst du?", indicating that she has won.
