Commercial adaptation of the epic orchestral theme by Richard Wagner. “Ride of the Valkyries” (Walkürenritt) is universally known orchestral piece from the operatic German music, coming from the Romantic period. Originally being a part of the opera “Die Walkure”. this piece is being constantly performed on its own, by the best symphonic orchestras in the world.
Valkyries are flying female warriors, and their ride music is the essential epic orchestral highlight, famous for its deadly mechanic repetitive groove, the bombastic brass theme, and energetic flow. This piece has influenced many Hollywood scores and considered as one of the early examples of the epic soundtrack music style we know today. Ride of the Valkyries is also being associated with the movie “Apocalypse Now”, where it is being played during a helicopter attack scene.
