    THis is great!! thanks. I can't wait to see the Spanish Gypsy... I have only see her do the soft music like Ave maria... playing it safe with the LP i see.... but still these sound like excenllent choices. she has the quiet elegance that Ave Maria requires and i think she will be able to hit those high notes with her extensions very well.

    Very happy for her SP choice! Now we will see her in another shoes!
    A little less for her LP! But I'll give her credits for trying a new kind of music for her SP! For 2009 she could choose something more innovative also for her LP.

    Innovation! That is something I wait! Especially in Ladies! I don't know why but I think today's ladies are more conservative, playing it safe. Once the skaters were more risking (Hubert, Gusmeroli, Czsako, Trenary, Thomas, Leistner, Biellmann... come to mind). Another risky yet fantastic programs were Kwan with Salome' and Taj Mahal.

    I hate to see programs to religious music, and I don't like it that Zhang is skating to another slow piece for her FS. If she HAD to use it, she should have reversed it: Ave Maria for the short and the Gypsy piece for the FS.

    Expand your musical horizons, Caroline.

    I think she decided to change the short type of music because she's moving out of her comfort zone, and I don't blame her for wanting to change gradually. She's only 14 years old, so give her a chance. If by 2009 she's still got only slow music, then we can discuss more thoroughly but, for now, I'm glad she's taking a step forward. She still could make Ave Maria really pretty.

    Yay

    I just got done listening to that Spanish gypsy piece, and I have to say, it seems very fitting for Caroline, especially if she wants to take a new approach to her skating. It also reminds me of Romanza, Michelle's music in 95-96. Also, Caroline is using Lori Nichol for her long program; surely Lori will bring out great maturity in this young talent.

    Go Caroline

    Lol! Just give it a chance!! Yu-Na Kim made her lyrical pieces work, and I'm hoping Caroline can too!

    Huh??? The Painted Veil's score was excellent; the very best thing about that film.

    If all ladies are going willowly this season, I fear TV ratings will drop. Imagine at Worlds 24 LPs on sad or slow music. I think some people will change the channel.
    But as for now we just know the choices of Yu Na and Zhang, so I still have hope. Maybe the other ladies will choose something different. I'm sure not Caro Kostner! She is another one who uses always the same kind of music (also in exhibitions). Mao did something different on Czardas, but I think she will change her LP. So, where is Olga Markova????

    It's a good step for a new approach, I agree!
