    Wagner wants SP music suggestions

    http://twitter.com/#!/AshWagner2010/...04331055357952

    I suggested the "Eugene Onegin" waltz. As I've said on here many times, I've always wanted to see someone skate to that!

    I'd love for her to go all upbeat and brilliant with either Lindemann's 2004 SP music "The Importance of Being Earnest"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nk0yrJq6hnY

    or Stephane Lambiel's 2005 SP to "Spanish Caravan"

    I can't tell her what music to use, but can we start a list of all of the cliché music that she shouldn't use? I think we had a thread for that....

    I'd love to see her skate to the black swan variation from swan lake, I think she could pull it off beautifully.

    Thank god.

    The Concerto for Constipated Violins was really getting on my nerves two seasons in a row.

    One other music choice and program I loved was Naomi Nari Nam's SP from 2000, called Where Eagles Dare.

    I think of "Largo From The Harpsichord Concerto In F Minor" sing by the Swingle Singer; only voices, no lyrics.

    Seconding that, and also suggesting the music (the aria or the dance music) for Tatiana's letter-writing scene.

    Can she go back to this? Pretty please? This was probably her best SP performance ever!

    On her latest video, she mentioned wanting something more upbeat and happy, a change from the dramatic, dark music she's used for the past couple of seasons.

    I actually love Once Upon a Time in America, but I can't wait to see something new from her next year.

    "A little peace with bombs and villians all around" by Deastro

    "Thunderbird" by Hans Zimmer (Thelma & Louise) ETA: um, not upbeat

    Fur Elise

    Un Sospiro by Liszt - I know Mirai is using a tiny piece of this, but a) the choreo to that part was not good and b) someone should skate to this exclusively)

    Rachmaninov Prelude in G minor op. 23 no. 5
    I don't recall anyone ever skating to this ... it's fantastic, combining power and lightness. Nothing like the 'Bells of Moscow' prelude.
    It's about 4 minutes ... I think it could be cut as an SP quite effectively.

    or even more upbeat:
    Etude Tableau in E flat, op. 33 no. 7 ... this one's not quite long enough but the editors out there seem quite creative ...

    I was just about to post this. Ashley's 2008/2009 SP was absolutely gorgeous and I would love it if we saw more programs like this one from her.

    Oh - upbeat! Bach's Cantata 169 (piano, not harpsichord). Otherwise known as "God Alone Should Have My Heart."

    I used to play that in high school (though not nearly that well)! I love it, but do you really think it would work for skating? The tempo might be a bit much. . . .

    It does have some fast licks in it, but I don't think the basic tempo of the 4/4 is any faster than a lot of other things ... only marginally faster than the ubiquitous Rach 2 first movement, for example.

    I used to play that too! It's probably my favorite piano repertoire, and I'm sure it could work for figure skating, with its quick and lyrical portions.

    I'm surprised she's continuing.

    Getting rid of her perpetual 2-foot landing is more important than finding a piece of music.

    I'm working on it now myself
    Another one I just love is the previous one in the set
    Prelude in D major op. 23 no 4
    I just finished memorizing it (well sort of, I'm still having slips )
    At 4:20 in length it would make a great long program!
