WAGNER'S BRASS: French Horn, "Tuba"(Tuben): brass section: which "leitmotifs" are most memorable?

Of all the many leitmotifs, themes, melodies Herr Wagner wrote for the brass instruments - either solo or in combination - composed for his operas(music dramas), which for you are the most memorable, most impressive, humable, unforgetable?

My favorite of the brass instruments, is the French Horn; and Wagner wrote some really glorious music for this instrument: either solo, section or in combination with the other instruments of the brass section.

For any who may not recall, he did write operas other than the four that comprise "The Ring" cycle.

One that seems nowadays to be rather neglected, is "The Flying Dutchman"; and the glorious theme(in the brass) of the Dutchman himself. Remember how it rings out so majestically at the end of the Overture, and the opera itself?

Alberich

Well, let's start at the top- the opening to Rheingold itself.
The 4th horn ( bass of the section) starts the slow rippling chordal motion that are the waves of the Rhine itself, building up majesty and intensity of sound until those three flighty ( swimmy?) Rhine maidens appear.
That takes care of the first couple of pages of the score, and that's just the horn section!
Of course, for the dewy-eyed devotees of that super sound on steroids, the entrance to Walhall in the tuben is not to be missed.
Of course, we all go for Walkürenritt. In my time as a student, we heard from folks across town at Occidental College. Finals week there, amongst the dorm people, was ushered in by everyone turning up whatever sound equipment one possessed at 7 a.m. on Monday and waken everyone else with this famous ride. They took it for a token of good luck. Who are we to argue?
I happen to like the Tuben as Hunding. Grumbly, suspicious, downright mean. Provides a nice foil to our hero/ine.
Others go for the Todesverkündigung ( Brunnhild letting Siegmund what's in store for him) because it's stately and noble again.

All horn players will agree with me, hands down, about the Siegfried call in that opera. Like his tenor namesake's role, it demands some of the utmost stamina to make it through.

And of course, Siegfried's Funeral Music in Götterdämmerung wouldn't be the same without that extra fullness because of the Tuben.

for any of those who would like more info ( and at the risk of penalty for advertising) I'll refer you all to the site www.ebenos.de.
In the next month, this little publishing company will be putting out a book on the subject of Wagner Tuben.
