Ohhhh I LOVE Valse Sentimentale... I was so sad when their medal was stripped away at 2000 Euros. They really deserved that one for the beautiful performance. I could watch that program over and over.

I kinda wished that they used a normal version of Meditation in 2002. The blended in sound in the background always kind of bothered me as much as I loved that program.

At GPF they used the normal version, and I liked it better. However (from what I read) Tamara felt that it would not satisfy certain requirements in the competition, so she inserted the add-ons - I assume to create variation of pace (that's what I am thinking she tried to do). After the Olympics, they removed those additions and skated it as an exhibition many times to the original music (although technically not the original, since that would have meant skating to the harp music version of it).

Just found the link to "If I could"- it's beautiful, particularly when seen live.

they were a dream pair, with their elegance and exquisite positions they always remind me of two classic statues in the garden of an ancient villa. there's something romantic and quietly melancholic about them that made their skating poetic. the epitome of artistry.

Umbrellas of Cherbourg at 2000 GPF:


Although it was not their best performance, it could have been beautiful had they skated it again, but I don't recall seeing them skate this before or after this competition. Did they?

Thank you for the link; I've never seen their Umbrellas of Cherbourg program before. Just stunning!!
