The first time I heard The Forging Song If was totally unaware it was from Siegfried. I loved it. A great rousing piece of work._____________LOL. Hope you grew to like more of Wagner's operas/music.I know it's weird, but I can't stand "rousing music" for more than a very limited number of minutes. I don't listen much to my local classical music station because too much of it is of the "rousing music" type. Ride of the Valkyries is great in the opera because of the context, but I don't like it when played solo.Probably because I'm such a philistine, I tend to like music that makes me feel "exalted" like the Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde. Ralph Vaughn William's "The Lark Ascending" and the Eagles "Wasted Time," though very different, each give me a similar "exalted" feeling. Obviously, can't be in a state of exaltation all the time. :)Like alstro said earlier, I also usually cry a little during the part of the last act of Die Walkure between Wotan and Brunnhilde.WessexP.S. I might have to learn how to type the vowels with umlauts. :)
