mmh..seems like a simple matter of personal preference, then, hehe.. walei, i wasn't asking to agree with my feelings, just to express you guys' view.
what can i say, the circular sequence has lost all the magic, for me. i may sound drastic, but im specifcally thinking of the ending of the original one. it was such a moment, when Scott skated smoothly but passionately around Tessa, deeep edges, perfectly matching the melody of the cellos. seemed like he was that melody. its such a tender moment, especially when Tessa stops and looks ahead with a dreaming glare and he comes to gently take her arm. reminded me of the same move Tessa does in Mahler when they stop and look in the air. perhaps i adore too much this aria, i dunno. btw, that is not the only moment that got lost.
about the second seq, now they twizzle together at the end exactly like Cappellini and Lanotte. that way, its rather predictable. btw, i didnt and dont want to sound negative towards them, just sorrow because i cant watch it in the same way without missing those special moments. and since it happened with Funny face too.. who made me cry in Finlandia for its immense beauty..but at Worlds, it was so different btw, thank you all for your opinions!
