Support Daisuke, join Daisuke Takahashi Road to Sochi
Aliona Savchenko/Robin Szolkowy and coach Ingo Steuer revealed their SP music in an interview. They are skating to "When Winter Comes", a music especially composed for them by Andre Rieu.
The long program will be revealed at the end of this month.
For the first time, they also worked with David Wilson in Toronto. Ingo praised this collaboration.
On the one hand, I so profoundly admire Steuer's choreography that I think it's a shame we'll get less of it next year. David Wilson's choreography runs the gamut from mediocre to brilliant, so I'm certainly hopeful that they produce something. Reading the article, I get the feeling that Wilson was not the choreographer, though, but more a PCS adjunct.
Terrific article, though. Lots of intriguing insight into Steuer's mindset and I simultaneously cannot wait to see what they have in store, but am very sad it's their final season. One of my all time favourites.
I'm sad this will be their final season too. I'm hoping that if they can't win the OGM (seems unlikely with the anointing of V/T at Worlds last season) that they can at least give us more memorable programs and have performances at the Olympics that they're proud of.
I think it's too soon to give the gold to V/T. Don't forget the team who won worlds in 09 only got the bronze in Vancouver so anything is possible. I hope S/S have great programs that shine.modern_muslimah;3967102]I'm sad this will be their final season too.

Also mentioned in the article is confirmation that Tanya and Max are using Jesus Christ Superstar! Ghost 2.0 from Morozov
S/S SP sounds wonderful but V/T 'Jesus Christ Superstar'? Why? The thought of it makes me want toI like both teams but I hope S/S win because this is it for them. It's selfish on my part too because then maybe I hope V/T will stick around. They have another 4 years in them don't they?
Some very interesting comments from Steuer, though I must say, they have been superior to V/T in the PCS before and it hasn't always helped, with the latter's political support and user-friendly programs. But hopefully the combination of Steuer's and Wilson's work will help them in that regard; I'd love to hear from Wilson about his experience working with the three of them.
I love that Steuer just had Tatiana Volosozhar tell him her music "direction", I wonder how Max and the rest of V/T's team felt about it. His take on JCS is pretty amusing, too.
another crappy SP fo r V/T, the LP better be good
Great to read, that Steuer and S/S decided not to take part in the Team Event at Sochi. Few years back Steuer had a different thought on that. As it would be in front and very close to their own competition I am happy to see that they can totally focus on that.
I am happy too, that there is another try for the collabortion with Andree Rieu. As i mentioned many times, their originally planned LP of 2010 'You'll never walk alone' could have been one of those master programs which always would remain in memories. a shame that it was changed.
interessting to read, that there seems to be something like a 'presentation of the german programs'. hope this times it's really with all it's leading skaters an dnot just 2 or 3.
fingers crossed for aliona and robin.
I love S/S, but was it really necessary for Steuer to mention V/T in his interview? Couldn't he let V/T announce their music themselves? I know he said "there are rumors", but still I didn't like that he mentioned that at all.
Tatiana and Maxim have been receiving riddiculously high notes these past seasons, I don't think it will be any different at the Olys which they have at home.
In order to win gold, Aliona and Robin will have to be absolutely flawless and V/T will have to make some mistakes. Which is sad, cause IMHO Aliona and Robin still have a much better skating quality and look much more efortless in their elements. I love V/T, they are strong technically and amazing chemistry and drama-wise, but I just wish they were receiving notes for their skating, not for the country they represent. I am aware that S/S tend to make mistakes more often, but I just cannot see how clean S/S are any worse than clean V/T.
There was a discussion going on in another thread about V/T's music for the new season and one poster suggested V/T might have picked JCS for one of their programs. Either that poster already knew something that we didn't or someone from Ingo's team read that thread and took seriously what was just guesswork on the part of the poster. lol
Steuer is not afraid to speak his mind."Aliona and Robin now are much better component-wise again, and certainly better than the Russians."
I respect your opinion but I do not agree that S/S have better skating quality than V/T.Which is sad, cause IMHO Aliona and Robin still have a much better skating quality
S/S are taking a lot of risk with the 3A in the short program but they obviously think it's their only chance to win.
