    Saint-Saens Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso

    Fabulous for footwork at about 1:40.

    Or: The River Waltz with Lang Lang.

    Or: Pride and Prejudice soundtrack, Dawn although I'd rather see Alissa Csizny skate to this.

    Or: Boieldieu, Concerto for Harp and Orchestra starting at about 2:20 as it is too slow and ponderous for skating at first but then it picks up in speed and drama. Again, this is great for a skater with very good flow and lyricism so again Czisny comes to mind. Sorry, this recording isn't very good.

    Or: Chopin Nocturne in C sharp minor--Carron and Jost skated a heartbreakingly beautiful program to this a few years ago.

    Or: Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1, 1st movement

    Or: Chopin Nocturne In E Minor Op. 72, No. 1

    Or: Chopin Nocturne Op.27 No.1 Csizny! Get out of my head!

    I've always wanted to see Alissa skate to Esquivel. She could wear some kind of mod outfit from the early 60's and skate to "whatchamacalit." Those funky horns could really highlight her spins.

    But why not Ashley The original version of Miniskirt (Sex & the City theme) would be great, too.

    I realize that the Debussy's music, Clair de Lune, has been used numerous times. However, Victor Borge's rendition on piano was mesmerizing. I was delighted to find it on YouTube.

    Actually it sounds more Tomas Verner to me. He could pull off the silly without being ridiculous. Especially when they get to the 'zooo zooo zooos'.

    I always wanted to see someone skate to the theme from "The Puppet Master" for a SP. I believe it's never been used.

    Strange piece of music. But would look good done in a harlequin-type unitard.

    Creepy in a humorous way. I like it, but I don't see Ashley skating to it - for some reason I could see it being more to Mirai's style.

    A little OT, but the one piece I would *flove* to see someone with the ability to pull it off skate to The Host of Seraphim by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry aka Dead Can Dance.

    One needs to listen to the entire thing to get the full impact of this piece, which is classified as an instrumental though there are voices (you may recognize Gerrard's as she was the vocalist on the Gladiator soundtrack). It's extremely haunting, yet amazingly beautiful.

    I suggested the "Eugene Onegin" waltz. As I've said on here many times, I've always wanted to see someone skate to that!
    Slightly off topic, but have you seen this?

    I agree 100 percent. I heart Dead Can Dance a million percent. Laetitia Hubert had a pretty good program their music years ago. I could actually see Ashley doing something really interesting with the music. I think Cantara would be a really good piece.

    Cool suggestion - there's so much jumpy, sweeping energy in the overture. Skaters better skate big to Bernstein.

    The soundtrack from "Motorcycle Diaries" has some fantastic music, esp. the overture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FNlQ7zz8q4

    I've always wanted someone to skate to Harry in Winter by John Williams (this version isn't the greatest quality, unfortunately, but it was all I could find). It might be a little repetitive on its own, but perhaps mixed with something else? I think it has the potential to be gorgeous, and it's never been used before.

    [QUOTE=eusebius;3072898]Rachmaninov Prelude in G minor op. 23 no. 5
    I don't recall anyone ever skating to this ...


    I was waiting for a long time for somebody to mention this music for a program! My dd used it for a novice short program, I heard it over 100 times but never stopped loving it.
    We used London Orchestra version and I think it was better for a skating program that a piano version. I think it will be perfect for Ashley - powerful and beautiful.

    If she wants cheerful, this came into my mind, one of my all-time favourite Cello Sonatas: Sammartini's Cello Sonata in G

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9h_WeY3dRk

    It has a lot of variation too and should be easily cuttable. It would make me super happy if someone skated to it. (And it has been on my mind a lot recently as I have been practicing this a LOT. If you listen to it you'll find out why I used the bold letters )

    Isn't it by Patrick Doyle? Beautiful, hope Ashley considers.
