    Sergei Prokofiev's 'Dance of the Knights' from his Romeo and Juliet:

    I think Yu-Na could do a very good job with this...

    Romeo and Juliet has indeed been used quite a lot, but that's mostly the Tchaikovsky and Rota versions. I don't think Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet is quite so commonly used, though. Has anyone used it recently?

    Ippolitov-Ivanov - Caucasian Sketches

    Ponchielli - Dance of the Hours (bring on the dancing ostriches, hippos and alligators!)

    This is not classical music (it is a classic though)

    Santana - Samba pa Ti

    i agree. that would make an excellent short for yu-na! I think Ashley Wagner could use this to good effect.

    Oh gosh, this sounds sooo familiar. Who used this music last?

    I get really excited whenever people use music performed by Vanessa-Mae. Has anyone used her take on Classical Gas? Whenever I listen to it I imagine someone skating. I also like Nigel Kennedy's renditions of violin pieces but I'm not sure if they'd make particularly great skating music.

    As for piano stuff...is it me or do people just not like Brahms? I love my Russians (Tchai! Rachy!) and I have a dream to learn to play all of Chopin's nocturnes...but...Brahms piano concertos!! And Debussey...but NOT his "Claire De Lune" (the piece makes me want to implode...)

    When it comes to contemporary piano (sorry to drag this into a "classical" music thread), I love all things Nyman (The Piano = <3) and because I grew up learning piano in Australia, Christopher Norton (Latin Preludes...)!

    Seriously, there is SO much awesome classical music out there, I'm surprised that people are still turning to Rach II and III. Or Carmen...or Bolero...or maybe I just have personal vendettas against the last two...

    McLaughlin Brukbaker used it in the 2007-2008 season. Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov used it in their FD during the Olympic season. But I don't remember any ladies singer using it recently. It is a great piece of music for skating though. And is very very different from the overused R&J by Rota.

    Frederic Dambier also used it in 2005-6, in his LP. Like you, I can't remember any of the ladies skating to it in recent years. It's certainly less commonly heard than the Rota R&J (which is pretty, but really - enough already).

    If we can get away from the warhorses of European classics, then I would suggest a piece by Chris Bodi. if his trumpet doesn't get to you, I question your love of music as just the sugary/dramatic kind.
