I'd hate to think Morozov was setting them up for a vocal deduction.
    I think they mean lyrical music. Maybe something like 'Adagio'? They would never skate to a music with lyrics, that would be placement murder for P/T.

    I'm sure you're right. I know that sometimes things translate very differently from Chinese to English. I assume the original source of the news was written in Chinese.

    Not too sure where the original source is from. The one I read from Z/Z's website only mentioned that P/T will skate to a tango. It did also mention that Z/Z have temporarily chosen 'Yangtze' for their Free Skate.

    I read from Icenetwork photo shoot, that Lysacek is travelling next week to Moscow to create new programmes with Tarasova. I blinked a couple of times and the first thought was that somebody has made a mistake and they meant Weir...., LOL. Anyway, I will be eagerly looking forward to those programmes as Lysacek is a very different person from those male skaters that Tarasova has worked earlier with, I think.

    I saw that too! I had to do a little double take lol. So I take it this means we won't have another season of Tosca?

    Actually, I'm going to miss Tosca, but am interested to see what these two will come up with together.

    That said, can someone please post some samples of some things that Tarasova has done with others? Sadly, I'm not all that familiar with what she has done or what her area(s) of expertise are. Please enlighten - a curious fan wants to know. Thanks.

    Zhang & Zhang are working with Shpilband VS Zueva on a new long program, together with two Chinese ice dancing teams.
    I can't quite picture them doing a tango, but I love Sarah Kawahawa's work, so that souds rather promising. as for zhang and zhang, almost anything has got to be better than last year.

    Well, don't forget Yags is a masculine skater with heoric style too. Tarasova did an excellent job to choreograph many of his classics. This is a very nice move for Evan. Looking forward to his new programs.

    Interesting music choices from the Chinese pairs, especially P/T's Tango. Hope they can pull it off.

    Me too!!

    There's a new article in the news section at IceNetwork in which Evan goes into more detail about the reasons behind his decision to work with her. A great move!!

    The pair recently returned from a month-long trip to the US where they trained with world-renowned choreographers Nikolai Morozov and Sarah Kawahara to develop their new routines.

    Blues music will be the backdrop for their short program, while their freestyle skating music will consist of up-tempo tango songs, a contrast to their previous freestyle, which was often slower and more lyrical.

    "We have listened to various types of music and finally decided to apply the styles that are a departure from our past," Tong said. "We hope the new program attracts the attention of the judges."

    I agree. I think this could be a good move for Lysacek, but he's not going to be as good as Yagudin at expressing himself, and he's not at that level technically, either. Yags may be a masculine skater, but he was and still is much more elegant and graceful on the ice than Lysacek. Still, the big thing is that this is an opportunity for Evan to improve and grow as a skater, and I'm glad he's making this change. I hope to see something interesting from him in the 2008-9 season.

    I don't think any skater can be compared to another skater in style. That's what they bring to the ice as their own contribution without coach and choreographer.

    I admire TT because she enhances a skater's style. She's not going to give Evan a quad lutz, but she just might find a new way for him to express himself on the ice. I think she will and I look forward to Evan this year.
