    The designated coach for jumps was decided for Asada. New FS is “Liebestraum”.

    The designated coach for jumps was decided for Asada. The new music for FS is “Liebestraum”.
    June 20, 2010 JST

    In Narita Air Port in June 20th, after returning to Japan from Canada where she had been to for making the new program, Mao Asada (19, Chukyo University) of Vancouver Olympics silver medalist had the interview and revealed that she is learning jumps from Hiroshi Nagakubo coach who grew Shizuka Arakawa of Turin Olympics winner from this month. But, he is the designated coach only for jumps and the coach to succeed Tatiana Tarasova seems not to be decided yet.

    As for the music for next season, it was decided that the music for SP is “Tango” by Alfred Schnittke and the music for FS is “Liebestraum” by Franz Listz. As for the FS which Lori Nichol choreographed, Asada said, "It contains the movement like being falling in love with one male. I think that I can express my own of the present time by this music."

    By the rule revision of International Skating Union (ISU), she is going to try to the high difficult constitution which she put the single triple Axel and Two consecutive triple jump combination as for the short program.

    Thank you so much, Akira Andrea!



    I'm really happy with Mao's music choices this season! Glad to know she's going for a 3+3 again! Can't wait to see the programs!

    Asada and Liebestraum =

    I want to believe TAT is going to choose the nice version of the tango but I think I will reserve judgment until I see it debut

    This is exciting news. I think Mao and Lori are a great partnership and Liebestraum should be great for them.

    I assume this is the tango she'll be using: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFXbikbxT1c. This should be great as well.

    Good choices, much better than last season. Libestraum is overused, but I'm looking forward to Mao's version of it. The tango music the LuckyCharm linked is really cool, but I do prefer the version floskate linked. I hope the choreography lives up the music choices.

    When is Mao going to premiere her new exhibition? The Ice? That's in July, right?

    There's some speculation as to which Alfred Schnittke tango she'll be using. This one is far more skate friendly than the other and seems more 'Mao' to me. I'm hoping it's this:

    Great choices for Mao!
    Liebestraum is overused, but it suits Mao.

    This is an article in “Sports Nippon” in Japan.
    Translation into English.
    Mao said also a suggestive comment. She attracts by "adult love".
    June 21st, 2010 JST

    At June 20th, Mao Asada (19, Chukyo University) returned to Narita Airport from Canada where she had been making the new program. As for the music to use for the program for next season, she decided "Tango" by Schnittke for SP and "Liebestraum" by Liszt for FS.

    The "Liebestraum" is a romantic adult music, but Asada said a suggestive comment. She said, "I can express my own of the present time by this music and whether I have a favorite male or not, I can skate while imagining the situation that I want to meet him or that he has appeared in my dream."

    Do you have a boyfriend? Is it one-sided love? She dodged skillfully as for details of question like that, but it says that it is the music which she can reflect obediently her own feelings in.

    She is learning under Hiroshi Nagakubo, 63, who grew Shizuka Arakawa as the designated coach for jumps from this month. Main coach is not decided yet, but there is some possibility not to put it as for this season, too.

    As for Yu-Na Kim who declared that she continues the eligible player, Asada said, "I had thought that she intend to continue the eligible player because she had not said that she retires from it."

    And reportedly, her gala Ex will be "Chopin Ballade No. 1".

    BTW, wasn't there a tread for 2010/2011 Program Info?
    Don't be serious!

    She looks happy and all that matters. It was breaking my heart last season to see her struggling with her tears in some interviews.
