    SP, huh? I thought it would be better suited for a LP. In any case, it's a bold and good move for Caroline.

    ETA: Looks like LeCygne beat me to it!

    Wow, never heard of this piece before. And I studied German, I don't know what it means either. "Ziegeunerweise" -- any German speakers to enlighten us?

    It's a very nice piece, really varied. Lots of texture. Lots of variety. Bold indeed.

    I wonder if this is indeed the piece. I guess Z is not a common syllable to begin a song with, and German is not an unlikely candidate.

    ETA: the fast movement at the end is familiar-sounding, so I have heard it before. And it's very fast! Good for footwork and maybe also spins.

    If Ziegeunerweisen is it, as you all suggest, I bet she will keep the slow movement in the middle. It seems to fit her well. It's a very exciting piece. I like it.

    Zigeuner is gypsy - gypsy style, "gypsy airs" acc to Wikipedia. I wonder if she'll use some contemporary version of it. Interestingly, it seems to be popular as an Asian film score.

    I think Ann Patrice has used this music before. Caroline is a great violinist, so I'm 99% positive she chose Zigeurnerweisen. Very nice piece for her.

    She did say a fast violin piece at one point, so it all makes sense.

    Is there a link to Ann Patrice's performance?

    I have had that piece for several months now on my iPod. I love the drama of that music, and i always thought it was excellent for a skater to use. It is kind of like Dark Eyes, only better. I think this is a good choice for Caroline. She will have to skate faster, and i loved her Spanish Gypsy SP.

    But most importantly, who will choreograph Zigeunerweisen? I'm hoping either Sarah Kawahara or Tom Dickson. I want Caroline de-Nicoled.

    Yeah I remember that, but I think it was for the LP? I hope she just changed her mind or something...

    I couldn't agree more. Annnd, what will she wear? I'd love to see her in black, or a dramatic red...Or a combo of the two. These two colors are probably too prevalent on the ice but they'll be different on Caroline. A nice change from the pastels.

    Thanks for posting the clip.

    I don't particularly care for the piece, but certain sections are fast and if Caroline relates well to this music, I'm glad she's using it. The middle section is especially moody and dramatic - if Caroline plans on using it, she will really have to up her presentation.

    I'm guessing she'll pick a faster number for her SP, and a slower, balletic, more atypical piece for the LP, similar to what she did with 'Spanish Gypsy' and 'Ave Maria'. And yes, please get thyself away from Lori, Caroline.

    I'm also impressed that Caroline has selected her programs (at least the SP) and is already presumably training them so early in the year. Is this the norm for other skaters as well? I suppose she wants to know the programs like the back of her hand in time for the Olympics - I have a feeling Caroline is the type of skater who puts out in competition what she usually does in practice.

    She started looking for programs since before World's, a good thing, too, since two months later she is still missing the LP.

    Yes. Except she slows down when she's under pressure in key competitions.
