    Jenny Kirk skated to "Die Fledermaus" @ 2003 Skate America (and brought down the house). Todd Eldredge skated to it in the early 1990's (as a short program?).

    Meryl & Charlie skated to "Die Fledermaus" last season. :)

    Oops! How did I miss that? I also corrected the SA year for Jenny - it was in 2003!

    Bechke & Petrov had skated to the Blue Danube in a pro competition but I can't find a yt link for it.

    The Blue Danube and Die Fledermaus seem to be the most popular Strauss music for skating (by ANY Strauss)

    I know that some ice dance teams skated to Radetzky March as part of their OD a few years ago, but I can't remember the year and who those ice dancers were. May be someone can help. I love B&S's Radetzky March. It really showcases their speed, power, unison, etc.

    Richard Strauss and Johann Strauss don't share anything in common besides their last name...

    And thanks to Moskvina's lack of vision for K/S, they skated to it in 2010 as well.

    I thought Thus Spoke Zarathustra would be horrible with figure skating but I thought wrong. That was a really great program.

    When I was a preliminary-level skater, in the summer of '75 I attended a rink skating school that offered a class in artistry or music interpretation or something like that, along with all the patch and freestyle sessions (and ice dance, which I skipped).

    I specifically remember being given that music to skate to, with big arm movements on the big chords at the beginning.

    And yet another...Moskivina rehash in music that was choreographed by Igor Bobrin. I do like this music because it is so powerful and varied in speed.

    I don't see anything wrong with using the same music ("rehash" in your words) for multiple skaters. How many skaters have used 'Carmen' for example? Why must only Moskvina be criticized for using the same music?

    Because she is the one doing it to her team, that's why I mentioned her specifically. I'm not talking about a hundred skaters in all disciplines using various forms of 'Carmen' over the last 40 years; I'm talking about her reusing programs for K/S from her former pairs or making K/S skate to Stauss' 'The Blue Danube' all the time. They haven't been to together that long to have reused so many programs in seven seasons. Most of the songs were already used by them or her former teams. It shows a lack of imagination on her part.

    I can forgive her for using Rondo Capriccioso for the second season short because she wasn't their coach at the time and didn't pick it, they also has a sparse first season, so that's a wash. But The Swan (used twice) was used by Mishkutenok and Dmitriev, Also sprach Zarathustra was used by Kazakova and Dmitriev, Valse Sentimentale was used by Berezhnaya and Sikharulidze etc.

    I don’t know of many skaters (if any) whose coaches do that to that extent. I just pray she doesn't keep their free skate for the Olympics, but she probably will. :rolleyes:
