    Classical Music that has had little use

    Since there is a Carmen thread circulating around here I'm sure there is some classical music out there that works but has seen little use.

    Jennifer Robinson of Canada skated to a few movements of Manuel De Falla "Suite of Spanish Folks Songs" Suite Populaire Espagnole

    Here are the sections used in it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiEoJlcbbNg

    Danse Espagnole

    Hard to believe I know. 2002/2003 season

    Have not heard this one ever since.

    Most skaters have skated to rachmaninoff Piano concerto no.2 but I have not heard any of them skate to concerto no.3.

    Michelle Kwan's 1998 SP, Alexander Abt's 2002 LP and Christopher Bowman's 1991 SP all use parts of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 (among others):

    That is true. You can always admire Michelle and Christopher for using creative pieces of classical music. No one seems to do that these days.
