    The name of the SP music Petrenko used for his 1988 Olympic bronze.

    Does anyone know the name of the music? I checked wikipedia, but there is no clue in his entry. I listened to a youtube clip of his performance, and it sounded like a classical ballet piece.

    Unhappy

    Is it Don Quixote by Minkus? Slutskaya, Sarah Hughes and John Curry also used this music, as well as Ilinykh/Katsalapov in recent times...I'm sure a lot of skaters used this music from the ballet

    Don Quixote was his LP music in 1988.

    Sounds like some kind of ballet music. Maybe it is another Minkus piece.

    It is a fabulous SP. His skating was really magnificent.

    I definitely agree. And he was only 18 at that time.

    And he has that amazing versatile style. Definitely a whole package skater, and way underachieved considering his technique.

    His Michael Jackson medley

    Romeo & Juliette, such a dramatic and emotional program.

    I loved what Viktor had in 1988 as an 18 year old. He had great speed, lines, elegance. He was a total package. I was a bit disappointed with the way he developed in later years, but he still was my favorite. His 1991 worlds LP is one of my all time favorites. Most of all, watching him live with COI made me really 'feel' the power of his skating. I remember one of the women sitting next to me saying- he has the most expressive body. So true.

    What is he doing now? There were many amazing Russian male skaters. Anyone doing coaching to pass their skills to the younger Russian kids?

    Yes, he is working with Brezina and if I remember well, with Johnny Weir in last season, in US.

    Exactly my thought.
    His skating was beautiful but I was not fond of his style.
    This SP is totally different from what I remember of him 1991-1994. WOW

    The music is from the (Soviet) ballet the Flames of Paris, by Boris Asafiev http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flames_of_Paris

    ETA: Here's a clip of the music in the ballet with Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slhOR2mqbgM

    Viktor was moon walking long before Plushenko. And his dramatic flair in programs like Romeo & Juliet show off that wonderful Soviet style with the strong ballet background. Petrenko, like Yagudin, was one of those skaters who could act and tell a story between the jumps. A real gift!

    Petrenko is Ukrainian, not Russian.

    One of my all-time favorite Viktor Petrenko performances is when he starred as Clara's godfather Herr Drosselmeier in "Nutcracker on Ice" starring Oksana Baiul.
