    Which music would you love to see skated to (& by who)?

    Are there any pieces of music you would love to see skaters skate to? For me:

    1) As mentioned on this thread I'd love to see Alissa Czisny skate to the 'Downton Abbey' suite.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7ULKKJ5UpI

    2) Alissa Czisny skating to 'My Sweet and Tender Beast'.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvUg7KLAclA

    3) Virtue & Moir skating to 'My Sweet and Tender Beast'.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvUg7KLAclA

    4) Kim Yu-Na to 'Carmen' (Habanera, Toreadors, etc). Yes, it's over skated to, but Kim Yu-Na is so spectacular so I'd love to see how she presents it.

    Would love to hear your thoughts

    I've never been fond of the twelve-tone composers, but I like your idea of something new in the way of music. Other violin concertos that might have sections to skate to are the Sibelius and the Dvorak. For some reason, I'm not fond of the Brahms, but his double concerto is a favorite of mine. YuNa or Mao could interpret any of those.

    Isn't that a traditional folk melody? I think Rodnina and Zaitsev used to skate to it as well.

    Yes, I agree. They both have the flow and grace for it.

    v/m to skate to "the legend of 900". That soundtrack is just awesome, I loved Dai's ex program to it (the crisis) and I hope it would be more used in figure skating. I think it will be great that a dance team with great flow skates to it, and some tracks could be used for finnstep

    Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam actually just had a lovely FD to it last season, which used "The Crisis" among other tracks.

    Lullaby Journey is my favorite album (it's incorrectly titled on the iTunes Store). Most of the pieces in it have words, so skaters would have to wait until the 2014-2015 season to skate to them. They could be used in exhibition programs in the Olympic season, though.

    yes! I was so happy when they chose it last summer, that's such a pity we couldn't enjoy it on bigger stages...

    I would like to see someone skate to my favourite Kreisler piece Tambourin Chinois. This is a version of David Garett
    It is great piece for a young Mao or a young Yuna. I think a lot of speed and youthful charm and joy is necessary to perform it well. Maybe something for Li Zijun? I think it would suit her style now. Or Akiko?...Hmmm, she is older but it could be fitting as well....

    This may be random, but I'd love to see Yuna skate to "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy." It's not an easy piece to interpret, since it's soft and lyrical and graceful throughout, but Yuna is one of the few ladies who could pull it off with finesse.
