    What about Dvorak's New World Symphony, Movement 4? The music hurls you right into epic-ness.

    oh, you guys know your classical
    how about a Prokofiev sonata?
    ha. kidding. I'll probably die before someone skates to a Prokofiev piece that's not Romeo & Juliet. His 5th symphony is a favorite of mine - not sure how skatable it is, though.

    Classical music is my first and foremost passion. Actually I would love to see the kid to skate to THIS movement, but it's so difficult to skate along, I dare any world class choreography do this, 2nd movement of Beethoven sym 7: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXJTe4pUguU

    I also love Prokofiev, his Dance of the Knights could be a good choice for Yuzuru, very heroic and epic and fresh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUmq1cpcglQ

    But personally I think lilahozi's choice is the best, Dvorak's music is very catchy.

    my two passions, classical music and skating
    the 7th, I love the 7th.
    I personally want to hear piano concertos other than Rach 2. There's Grieg, Brahms 2, Rach 3, Ravel, Tchaikovsky 1 (someone needs to do this piece justice, I can't stand Kovtun's long), Chopin 2 (and his other pieces! he wrote so much more than that nocturne)

    Prokofiev *-* my love *-*
    but I agree about the Dvorak! legendary symphony.

    If it's Chopin then I would love to see any skater choose this one, which was only published after his death: http://youtu.be/YXhhYLMVMAc
    Sounds easy but crazy phrasing! Wonderful piece and number 1 version by Sokolov.
    Agree with you, someone please save Tchaikovsky piano concerto 1 from Kovtun!!!

    And this one would be much better than even Yulia's Schindler's list: http://youtu.be/ImIwpDCMC10

    As a former skater.....you do have some input into the choice of music for your programs. Its is a collaborative effort. It is hard to skate to music you dont feel or relate to so to force a specific piece onto a skater is not a good strategy. In my personal opinion, im not that excited that skaters can use lyrics...for competitions. I would prefer that to stay in shows only, but just my humble opinion.

    Even for Brian Orser...he fell in love with The Bolt 3 years before the 88 Olympics, and says he ear marked it for his olympic program, so he kept it in his collection until he wanted to showcase it.

    I live in Canada and cant wait for Yuzuru to return...because here at least he can have somewhat of a normal life and train hard and concentrate on what he needs to do. He can walk down the streets without getting mobbed by fans. Hopefully it will be a good break from the media scrutiny as well...although i know that the media sends film crews to his practice arena to film sometimes, mostly its closed sessions to just members of the club.

    yes!!! I love that waltz.
    I literally just discovered this after listening to the original piano version for the longest time - Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, orchestrated by Ravel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkC3chi_ysw I think this could be just as good as the other pieces that were linked!!

    I find it funny how we always return to the topic of music we want Yuzuru to skate

    Lol! I like Mussorgsky much better than Rachmaninov! Mussorgsky has the rawness and the powerful/heroic tone. Rachmaninov sounds cheesy to my ears.
    And yes, that Pictures at an Exhibition version for orchestra is wonderful! We could even make a movie on skating base on the music.
    Each skater can portray a picture mentioned in the exhibition, they can choose a suitable section to skate along.
    That would be a masterpiece! We need another drama on ice called Pictures at an Exhibition!

    Sorry my imagination runs a bit wild.
