    Skating to Russian Folk Music

    Although I don't always know the title of the song, I often enjoy it when skaters use Russian folk music.

    Some of my favorites:

    Gordeeva-Grinkov: 1988 Oly ex (second number starts around 4:00 mark)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M70Js-WAE8I

    Krylova-Ovssianikov: 1996 worlds OD
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOMzwnrRD9o

    Berezhnaya-Sikharulidze: 2001 worlds SP (Polyushka Pol/Meadowland) and later they skated a pro routine to a longer version of it

    Also B&S's Dark Eyes (1998 LP), Kalinka (Ex) are my favorites.

    Mao Asada skated to Czardas LP in 2007. I think she won the LP but placed second overall.
    Christopher Bowman skated a part of his LP in 87 to Czardas.

    Dark eyes is probably the most popular Russian folk music.
    Besides B&S, others that skated to it were Plushenko (2000 LP), Sasha Cohen (2005 & 2006 SP), Liza Tuk (2012-13 LP). Liza's music is not as good as the other three.

    Plushenko:

    Virtue-Moir 2008 worlds OD (Dark eyes)

    Akiko 2008 (Dark eyes)

    Others that skated to Kalinka:
    Rodnina-Zaitsev, Maisuradze & his new partner, Irina, Borodulin (2010 SP), Bobrova-Soloviev (2009)

    Rodnina-Zaitsev:

    I enjoyed Irina's LP in 1998. I think it was a medley.

    Thanks for the correction. Just goes to show how little I know about eastern Europe.

    Now it makes sense that Bowman skated to Hungarian Rhapsody and Czardas in the same LP.

    I will remove this from my list of programs in the OP.

    I am hoping that more posters will point out some mistakes in my post, and add to my knowledge.

    Thanks so much for the thread Vash! I always enjoy these posts, it's so much fun to revisit some of my old favs and discover new ones as well. I haven't had the chance to watch all of the vids on the list, but about the first few:

    Here is a direct link to G&G's appropirately named, "Katyusha" exhibition. http://youtu.be/6Xri-zNz1BM

    I absolutely love K&O's routine. I think it might actually be my favorite K&O free dance after Carmen.

    Sigh, B&S, their flow, speed on the ice. spirals and enormous triple throw really were absolutely breathtaking. BTW, I had no idea Dark Eyes was a Russian tune.

    M&D also had an exibition for the 1989-1990 season, and then bought back for the 1992 World Championships. The tune, from what I recall, was never named, but I remember seeing it labeled as a "Moldavian Folk Tune" a long while ago on FSVids. Which while isn't Russian, seems appropriate to mention because of it's F.S.U. connections.

    I remember the Seybolds skating to Galinka and now that I watch it again, I hear it has Dark Eyes in it as well. This is from their Worlds 1989 performance, not the US Nationals that they were supposed to win but had problems and lost to Yamaguchi and Galindo.

    I ABSOLUTELY love the Russian Folk Music or any Folk Music. I actually liked Belbin and Agosto's Moldavian Folk Dance choreographed by Linuchuk.
