Discussion in 'Great Skate Debate' started by Sylvia, Apr 27, 2012.
Noooooooooooooo Nessun Dorma. Why. What did we ever do to deserve that?
American Ice Dance couple Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue with the flamenco floor dancer Timo Nunez
So, H-D will skate flamenco in FD.
Great choice for David/White and Adam Rippon.
Me too. I think the tone of of D/W freedance will be too much like last year (although that seems like the powers-at-be want). I'd love for them to do Giselle as their freedance, but with using the mad scene and the grand pas de deux.
Awful, predictable music choices from Davis/White. Exactly what you could expect from Zueva.
Their FD has been announced ages ago and it's "Rumour Has It" and "Turning Tables" by Adele.
No, that's Lynn Kriengkrairut/Logan Giulietti-Schmitt's FD music.
Narumi Takahashi/Mervin skated their "Ain't No Sunshine" SP (version performed by violinist David Garrett I believe?), choreographed by Julie Marcotte, in competition at the Quebec Summer Championships today: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/24607213
ETA: Video links for Moore-Towers/Moscovitch's SP & FS and Duhamel/Radford's SP are posted in the "Canadian Pairs 2012" thread in the Trash Can.
Lysacek's updated Team USA bio includes his program music: http://web.icenetwork.com/skaters/detail.jsp?id=100081&mode=I
Does Julie Marcotte know anything other than classical versions of pop songs?
I can also hum the entire score and if it's the part where Giselle's theme is played during her mad scene in a polka-time....then I think that it would work.
^Thanks Sylvia. Very, very nice!
Ahhhh thanks. For some reason I was convinced it was H/D's FD.
A tango is going to work great for them, given they seem to be all about THE SEX.
According to this article, Oleg Epstein is working with Marina Zoueva on choreography for team Canton. Marina has no coment on Meryl and Charlie's music.
No Evan! NO!!! Don't you DARE touch Poeta get your own freakin music and leave this masterpiece to the Master. How dare you!!!
Do you mean this one?:
This march could work for an alternate rhythm:
Also the gallop:
It's such a dancey score:
Act 2, No. 14
Grand pas de deux (Andantino)
Grand pas de deux (Valse)
The score for "Giselle" is almost always played too slowly as a big symphonic piece, often to accommodate big effect changes to the choreography. The tempi for almost all recordings would have to be adjusted.
Copying what I just posted in the D/W thread since it concerns music - I've heard from an extremely reliable source that Meryl and Charlie are not skating to Sinatra. There was an egregious miscommunication. They considered it as an option but quickly dismissed it in favor of a piece they've wanted to do forever. I'm sure we'll hear all about it during Champs Camp!
So my theory that USFSA leaked this to gather negative feedback to show them is still a possibility Maybe we´ll finally see La Strada
There is a ceiling cat!
Not if they abandoned it early in the process in favor of something else. Champs camp is pretty close. Plus, guessing that USFSA would object to a Sinatra FD is really giving them too much credit, I think.
A flamenco FD is going to terrible choice for them if they don't improve their stamina and sharpness. Last years FD became really sluggish by the halfway point, and something as sharp as a flamenco is only going to make it seem worse.
Maybe it was USFS that told the press that Shpilband was dumped at the request of D/W and the Shibs, too...
Well, IN is pretty much a USFS subsidiary...
THANK GOD FOR THAT! -
What a relief - and I can only hope it's true. One of the few American teams with a real potential for the dramatic - doing ballroom 2 seasons in a row - I need to sit down - Im feeling ill.
Oh yeah, girl.
A suggestion. I'd go all the way to Sendai to see them live if they were doing this.
Deleted accidental double post
I just think it's odd if that were the case why did such a precise song list get handed into Icenetwork? Sylvia (and I get the impression she has her connections and knows of what she speaks) said here:
Btw...they objected to Amelie and La Strada. If they didn´t like those I can totally see them not liking Strangers in the Night and the other song (Cheek to Cheek is fine but even then they might feel the whole vibe is too similar to things the Shibs and V&M did)
if your point is that sometimes the press gets it wrong fine but in light of what Sylvia wrote AND the fact they had a songlist (not just a general "Sinatra" for description) I don't see the similarity between the two situations.
At any rate we should know what they are skating to in a few short weeks. I´m still believing the Carmen rumour (unless that gets pulled due to C&L which is my main hesitation with this choice). I´m MOST excited to actually hear the Shibs music choice. Will Marina surpise us with this one!?
Gabriella Papadakis &Guillame Cizeron FRA
SD Blues, Swing
FD Pink Floyd medley
Maybe the Sinatra medley is their exhibition and someone at IN mistakenly listed it for their free dance?
Gilles/Poirier Free Dance
I don't like the "wanted to do forever" part.
Last time it was said, we ended up with "Phantom"
Or was Phantom the "we listened to hundreds of CDs and ended up with PotO"... still, scary.
Thought I should contribute to the polka theme :
I think this is pretty much what is going to happen to us all by the end of the season.
