Miki Ando skated a very respectable SP to Chopin (Pianist music at the end) around 2002, but I could not find the program or more info on it. I just remember watching it on YT long ago.

Kozuka skated his LP in 2006 to Chopin's concerto #2, but he was very young then, so I did not include him. He is a much better skater now.

Gordeeva-Grinkov used some Chopin in their 1988 Oly LP, but it was only a small part of their routine, so I did not include it here.

Were you thinking of her absolutely lovely 2004 sp? Proves that she had a gorgeous layback at one point (Uncle Dick even makes note of it!). Begs the question of what it would be like if she would have stayed with the Sato's.

I love that! Yes, that's the one. I was off by a couple of years. This should have been on the poll. Can the admin add this?

Ooh Definately Mao Asada's Nocturne No. 2. It really was beautiful and a lovely program to showcase her as a ladies skater. I really like the Skate America SP as you could see her blades working. It was rather lovely. Just a pity she didn't perform well at Worlds.

I must admit to being ignorant of those other performances except for Shizukas. It was fantastic as well.

There must be other Chopins you're forgetting. I'm rather useless at remembering who skated to what music.

It was in the 2003/2004 season and here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwmtaR-YhaM. One of my favourite short programs ever.

Siudeks!!!

You could tell their true love for the country from that free programme.

Mao's Nocturne SP and her Ballade Exhibition are my top picks. :) I also really liked Yagudin's Etude. It's probably my second favorite SP of his next to Winter.

I also voted for Arakawa. I also love Mao's two most recent Chopin Exhibitions

My vote goes to the Protopopovs.
I love Shizuka Arakawa's skating, but her Chopin SP was not my favorite. Maybe because I have in mind her Olympic performance, which was conservative, IMO.

definitly mao's nocturne and ballade which really felt like the music was made for her to skate...
