Sonia Heinie used it. Isn't that enough?
I just think it's being used and used again just because it is indeed great music.
Hanyu said also his free program is storical and easy to express emotions in radio interview
It's not over used for ice dance.Now maybe if we were talking about The Feeling Begins
Hannah Miller's new programs, choreographed by Daniil Barantsev, are "Firebird" by Igor Stravinsky (SP) & "Primavera" by Ludovico Einaudi (FS) - as posted in her blog today (6/23): http://hannahmiller1.wordpress.com
Blumberg and seibert at 1984 Olympics
Don't know if this was the last time.
Macleod and Raitt pro competition 1982
This music was more used in pair skating (the last time this was Totmynina-Marinin and Zhangs). Plus single skaters like this muisc.
Reading with Google translate, Pang/Tong's new SP is to "Nocturne" selected from the Italian composer who composed "La Califfa" and FS is to I dreamed a dream from musical Les Misérables. Anyone is welocome who can voluntarily translate/explain the article below.
Is their SP to this music?
yes， Pang/Tong's SP: Nocturne from "Lady Caliph",Music by:Ennio Morricone ,performed by Yo-Yo Ma Choreographer: Nikolai Morozov
FS: I dreamed a dream from “Les Misérables” ,Choreographer: David Wilson.
Thank you, whispering!
Yes,it's the one Berezhnaya/Sikharulidze used in 2002
Thanks, zotza. I love both of the musics. As a big fan of P/T I hooe Wilson and Morozov gave them nice programs(fingers crossed).
Here is the video of Nocturne from "Lady Caliph" played by Yo-Yo Ma
great 'la califfa' is chosen again. gorgeous piece of music; not used after johnny weir in 2010 as i remember.
but i don't know if p/t do themselves any favor with this choice. the sp of b/s in 2002 was outstanding. i personally would like to see more fire in p/t's program, you have seen, that they could deliver this, like 2010 free skate. but great this music will be heard again, even if it's for my memory of gorgeous b/s
Owww I love that music and loved B/S's sp !
I'm not bored by choice, P/T are totally different to BS, so can't wait to see this program too !
Was that when one of the judges decided it wasn't appropriate music for ice dance?
I believe Donlan/Speroff skated to Nocturne from Lady Caliph last season.
It's a beautiful score, so that's great, but why on earth would anyone allow Nikolai Morozov to come anywhere near it?
Not exactly the most original choices and I wish they had got better choreographers. I would have liked to see them go out with a bang.
Who else had used those music recently?
And they are probably not allowed to bang until after Sochi.
I just did an interview for my blog at http://www.facebook.com/SkateGuard with Douglas Razzano: http://skateguard1.blogspot.ca/2013/06/interview-with-douglas-razzano.html and he let me know his programs will be:
SP: "Clair De Lune" (Claude Debussy)
FS: "Turandot"/"Nessun Dorma" (Giacomo Puccini)
Any news on Osmond and music choices do this year? I assume Vipond will be doing choreography
Doug Ledret's (sp?) Music taste is rivaled only by Tom Zakrajsek and Yao Bin. The three of them should get together.
IIRC Doug has used both of those pieces in the past.
Why does it have to be recently to be overused or not original. Les Mis is this season's Black swan.
Jeremy Abbott and Yu Na Kim both skated to Les Miserables last season. I don't remember what sections Kim skated to (Abbott stuck with "Bring Him Home")
My prediction is
last season: Black Swan
this season: Les Miserable
next season: Anna Karenina
Kim had a large chunk of On My Own and a little bit of everything else except for I Dreamed a Dream.
No one skated to I Dreamed a Dream for a long time I don't think. Actually I don't remember anyone skating to it ever.
Also, I don't remember anyone skating to La Califfa since B&S in 2002, i.e. 12 seasons ago. And before that I don't know who else skated to it.
(but I don't watch a lot of skating prior to the 90s and don't watch dance)
Johnny Weir's 2010 LP was in part to Lady Caliph, and as I noted earlier, American pair Donlan/Speroff used it for their SP last season. Can't think of anyone else, though.
Thanks Zemgirl. I only remember Weir having skated to Dr Zhivago, Rondo and the Swan. i.e. I only remember the good years.
