    That is not really called the Sentimental Waltz. It is music from the movie My Sweet and Tender Beast.

    For some reason this piece is referred to as "Sentimental Waltz" on recordings in the English-speaking world, even though it did not have any particular name (just "Waltz)" on the original Russian movie sound track.

    Here is the scene.

    I guess I would just call it the waltz from that movie. It was never called Sentimental Waltz in the original movie.

    You've piqued my curiosity, seniorita.....Sasha's well-known and 'great' SPs have been:

    My Sweet and Tender Beast
    Malaguena
    Dark Eyes
    Espana Cani

    The music of My Sweet and Tender Beast has been used by quite a few skaters but it isn't THAT frequently skated to (especially compared to the others), so I'm going to cross it off the list. Ditto for Espana Cani...so I'm guessing it has to be either Malaguena or Dark Eyes. I just hope it won't be a muzak arrangement!

    I was hoping she would use something less common such as Dark Eyes and Malaguena. I am so tired of hearing this music at competitions.

    senorita:
    "And mishin has a new invention that uses on every skater's run-through but I don't know what they do with it."

    I read from a fan of Plushy who is in Pinzolo and she is also watching the training camp, probably Mishin made a sensor to improve the skating skills, like jump- jacket. But I don't know is it possible?

    I am afraid I am a bit late to say this but...

    SENIORITA, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your reports for us!
    You really made us feel as if we all were at the camp with YOU!!!
    Hope you had a great time beside spending hours at the cold ice rinkside during your vacation.

    Maybe is possible because when they wear it they just go through choreo, and everything before and after a jump and not sequences either, it sends data to a computer and then they all watch results, but really I don't know. Today it seems there is gala again so I didnt see training. For the times I went there no I didn't see Liza train the triple axel. But all the week they do mostly choreography and connection with the elements, and spins and this is the first camp, there ate two more. But it is only june and Liza looks like ready presenting her lp.

    not exactly a surprising choice, he has used almost every other warhorse in the book. Rota's R&J is indeed a beautiful piece of music, but as another poster said, its not like he is going to make any ground breaking interpretation of it. It will be basic plushenko moves set to Edvin Marton violin (yes, he already has a Romeo and Juliet variation).

    In the past few years, I haven't seen ground breaking interpretations of warhorses in general so why would anyone expect one from Plushenko anyways?
