I have had similar experiences. Not so long ago I heard some music that
I simply didn't know. I speculated: Poulenc? Shostakovich? Prokofiev?
It was Hindemith's Clarinet Concerto!!! I have listened to it many times
since then and am still fasinated by it.
As for a complete "Ring" that would take a long, long trip. I suppose
it could be done on the way from Ohio to Florida or California. I'm not
sure I could take that.
