Nino Rota, La Strada. R&K were amazing in 94 and Takahashi's was superb. It demands a great sense of musicality but no one who lacks CH ability would ever tackle it.

Has any lady ever used it?

I vaguely think I have seen at least one, but I can't remember who when or where. Probably not an elite skater.

Kiri Baga plans to use it for her LP this coming season.




I agree that some original Lizst music would be nice. There is SO much music out there that would work very well for skating, but we never seem to hear it.

Well the Hungarian Rhapsody #2 has long been a favorite of skaters, and Liebestraume has also had some memorable performances.

On a lighter note... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9cALGYGXIo)

Triple Butz, you just blew my mind; I just wrote a grad school Music History paper about the use of "Dies Irae" in Berlioz's Symphonie fantastic. Are you also a music teacher or something???

I'm an orchestral musician- actually the Berlioz is our season opener in September, can't wait to play it again.

Rac 2. Feeling Begins works well for just about everyone IMO. Although if your a dance team do you want to be compared to G/P. Question would Feeling Begins be even allowed under the new rules. What's so uplifting about a Harem girl getting killed?

Also, Harlem Nocturne ...... guaranteed to make anyone a :smokin: void.

Which lady besides Markova and Poth used it? ;)

Not that I recall, but Buttle's version was brilliant! :cool:

Yoshie Onda (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzzC1SgYQFQ) used it in 2005. :shuffle:

I concur!

Another selection that I think always works is the Amelie soundtrack. It actually made me kinda like B/A.

Rachmaninoff also used the Dies Irae as a recurring theme in Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Requiem for a Dream.....but only for men's programs. My favourite is Tomas Verner's from 2007 Worlds

I know some think it's been done to death but I was quite happy to watch both Irina and Sarah skate to it at the same Worlds!

Despite overused, I always like listening to Boléro.
