    I did like the music cuts in this version.

    or Variations on a Theme by Paganini.
    How can you not like these dances?

    The true original is a Gregorian chant "Dies Irae" that was used in various forms by hundreds of composers before Liszt utilized it.

    Nino Rota, La Strada. R&K were amazing in 94 and Takahashi's was superb. It demands a great sense of musicality but no one who lacks CH ability would ever tackle it.

    Has any lady ever used it?

    If this was 2006, Requiem for a Dream for sure!! But since then my mind is becoming
    programmed to liken this music to mediocrity every time a skater/team, especially lesser
    teams skate to this music. Moreso the senior skaters, rather than the supposedly less
    mature juniors. lol. Either the team/skaters produce a dead soulless interpretation, no
    personality, zero interest blablablab. Or, others just have bad choreography to go along
    with the music. Either case, ANY case with any piece when beautiful music suffers such
    an indignity such as bad choreography or whatever the case may be I want to
    blacklist the music choice for everyone.

    Triple Butz, you just blew my mind; I just wrote a grad school Music History paper about the use of "Dies Irae" in Berlioz's Symphonie fantastic. Are you also a music teacher or something???

    I agree that some original Lizst music would be nice. There is SO much music out there that would work very well for skating, but we never seem to hear it.

    I vaguely think I have seen at least one, but I can't remember who when or where. Probably not an elite skater.

    Kiri Baga plans to use it for her LP this coming season.

    Well the Hungarian Rhapsody #2 has long been a favorite of skaters, and Liebestraume has also had some memorable performances.

    On a lighter note...

    I'm an orchestral musician- actually the Berlioz is our season opener in September, can't wait to play it again.

    Rac 2. Feeling Begins works well for just about everyone IMO. Although if your a dance team do you want to be compared to G/P. Question would Feeling Begins be even allowed under the new rules. What's so uplifting about a Harem girl getting killed?

    Not that I recall, but Buttle's version was brilliant!

    Yoshie Onda used it in 2005.

    Fumie
    I concur!

    Another selection that I think always works is the Amelie soundtrack. It actually made me kinda like B/A.

    Rachmaninoff also used the Dies Irae as a recurring theme in Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
