    Nobody asked for your input.



    I really, really was looking forward to seeing Ashley's "Kashmir" program. I wish she could reprise that one!

    Just about anything by Courtney Love would probably work.

    Baltar's Dream composed by Bear McCreary. It would take skating with a lot of passion as it builds to a fury towards the end.

    For something softer and with less tension to the music,

    Primavera composed by Ludovico Einaudi (some may recognize this from the trailer from The Reader - primarily the section that begins at around 2:15). It would definitely have to be edited down for time as the entire piece is over 7 minutes.

    Sentimental Journey by Esquivel and his Orchestra. IN my head, I always choreograph an SP to it when I hear it.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I wouldlove to see her skate to SENTIMENTAL WALTZ. I love thst piece of music and think the slow and nuanced music might help her to reduce the kind of frantic pace she sets for herself.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    I suggested A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics from the A Beautiful Mind soundtrack and Violento (Up Mix) by Bailongo.

    Someone mentioned the musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in another thread. The music from that 1967 film is upbeat, and might be the different kind of style that Ashley would enjoy skating to.

    I really think this would work for her:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-JA0GL5fwU

    It's Myrskyluodon Maija (Stormskärs Maja) by Lasse Mårtenson. Could someone with a twitter account please post it to her?

    this is good for her, it's a light, airy and not heavy piece of music. If i were her, i'd stick with this type of music or very, very upbeat pieces. Dirge-y pieces don't suit her.

    hahaha, before i even got to your post I was thinking to myself:

    1) what about EOE?

    and then:

    2) what if everyone chose the same music as a joke for next year?

    and then:

    3) what if everyone just skated to EOE?!?!

    Oooh, I've been wanting someone to skate to this for a while now!

    My favorite thing about her skating is how aggressive and strong she can be (when she's on.) I'm a big Leonard Bernstein fan, and would love for Ashley to skate to something from Candide. Bug, lush, dramatic, melodic.

    Todd, I agree - CANDIDE overture would be fantastic...footwork to that last quick musical sequence, imagine!

    Something classical, powerful, majestic for Ashley. No little tinkly, schmaltzy stuff for her. Her 2007/08 season SP's music to St-S Henry VIII was ideal, even if she skated it in a more junior manner back then.

    How about the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto (especially the end of the 1st mvt) or Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto beginning (which Rochette skated to a couple of years ago)?

    I love this piece. The third movement also has some good upbeat music that could work well for a program.

    For some violin concertos with nice upbeat sections that have been used in skating even less, how about those by Lalo and Brahms?

    "Last of the Mohicans" could be good. I skated to it a few years ago when I wanted something powerful and inspiring and I loved it! My inspiration was the dark haired sister in the film, the one who fights through and never gives up. . . kind of like Ashley.

    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....
    That is one of my all time favorite pieces of music. SO passionate. I can't imagine why anyone hasn't skated to it-Rachmaninoff being so popular and all. I used to "try" to play this in my youth when I took piano. I could handle the middle "Chasing Rainbows" part, but for the beginning and ending you need an extra hand and several extra fingers!

    Thanks for that. My heart is still pounding. I like his interpretation, too. Not too terribly fast and he brought out the secondary melodies.
