Orchestra: Unknown

Composer: Richard Wagner (pronounced ‘Vag-ner’)

Piece: Ride of the Valkyries, Act III of Die Walkure

You’ve heard it a million times before, the epic of all epicness in movies and TV commercials. Now you know who wrote it and what it is called. ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ (1856) is only one 5 minute passage in an opera that is 3 hours and 45 minutes long (that’s like watching Frozen and Frozen II back-to-back).
