Musical marathon: A ten-minute guide to the ring cycle

There was a great piece on Wagner's Ring Cycle in the Independent, March 1st.

My favourite quote is:

"Wagner has lovely moments but awful quarters of an hour." Italian composer Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868), in 1867.

Ouch, 15 hours Wagner non stop is a lot. I like his music in smaller doses. :)
