    Choreographers: Sarah Kawahara, Nikolai Morozov
    Training town: Beijing

    SP: O Doux Printemps d' Autrefois by Jules Massenet
    LP: Tango: Present, Past, Future by Gotan Project

    Returning from a month-long trip to the US earlier this year, Pang/Tong, the 2006 pairs world champions, had world-renowned choreographers Nikolai Morozov and Sarah Kawahara step in to help develop their new routines.
    Blues will form the soundtrack for their short program, while up-tempo tango will replace the slower and more lyrical music they previously opted for in their freestyle routines.
    "There is now a sharper contrast between our two routines, since the short program will have a slower rhythm while the free skating will be faster and stronger," said Tong.
    "The new routines will be more like dance performances rather than relying solely on technical elements. We hope to impress the judges with our changes."

    I just had to ask, being a film score collector, how is it that Goen With The Wind is mentioned as "By John Williams?" Did he conduct it, is it a re-recording, or is it the original 199 score? If the latter, Williams was not even in the business back then.
