I agree with this - although I understand the need to make the change to something with a bit more excitement, I don't know why Tosca was necessary. Did TAT say that they had to use Tosca? Because if she did then I understand because they don't want to be panned by TAT and the Russian fed.

Yes, they said it was a suggestion of Tatiana Tarasaova. I asked them if they were "forced" to change it, but naturally they didn't say that but that they appreciate Tarasova's input. I asked if they felt it was too risky to stick with the Ennio Morricone piece all way thru and interesting enough Dmitri said that maybe they weren't ready yet for that.

Did he tell you he will keep this program with 100 music cuts instead of Miyamoto's? I cant believe this is not just for test skates and he abandoned R&J for good :/ that looked like a real program.

Where is Liza?

Do you have a link to R&J?

I thought this program was well paced... I identified 3 pieces: Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso, The Swan, and Danse Macabre... they're all by the same composer so I didn't feel like the selections were random, and at least it wasn't Marton or some modern arrangement. The purity of the music allowed his basics to come through, IMO. I would like to watch R&J for comparison, though.

I wonder why is her LP only 3 mins 10 long?

She was sick recently and didn't skate the whole program on Wednesday either.

Of the 3 top Russian pairs I am surprised that I like K. Stolbova/F Klimov SP the most and 2nd V. Bazarova/J. Larionov SP and T. Volosozhar/M. Trankov SP Godfather jazz version the least."Normally" it would be the other way around for me.

Me too. I haven't seen this test skate yet, but she still looked good (with the exception of a fall) at last week's test, so hopefully she'll be at full recovery very soon.

A tip: if you have a hangover after drinking, do NOT listen to Sotnikova's music. :scream:
