    Narumi Takahashi/Ryuichi Kihara "Les Miz" LP (as per usual, I procured this from a program that provides free on-demand streams of Japanese terrestrial channels, hence the low video quality, sorry):

    Scheherazade and Les Miz are two overused music pieces this season...

    Although scheherazade seems like a very risky move as it's been done countless times, i trust that Lori Nichols always gives her best work for Carolina and that it will probably be amazing.

    The short music sounds unusual imo and my first instinct is "omg this sounds terrible" but then i remember saying similar things when i first listened to her 2011-2012 sp "Allegretto from Trio No. 2" and we all know that turned out amazing

    Humoresque is far from unusual.

    That depends on the one Carolina has chosen. If it will be the seventh one, than the music is pretty overused indeed. But as sk8tingcoach suggested before, maybe it will be an unusual program on usual music.

    I love this girl! The maturity and interpretation are far beyond her age, and she's so musical I don't think it's a coincidence that she shares the same coach as one of the most beautiful and musical skaters ever, Yukina Ota.

    I little surprised at Carolina's music choices as they are both such familiar tunes. But I trust that she'll continue bringing something new to the ice every year

    They are both wonderful pieces of music but I agree. And not just "this" (Olympic type) season. In general as well.

    Who else have skated to 'Humoresque' ? I can't recall anyone on top of my head.

    I have sent a message to Caro, giving her suggestion of 2 very nice songs for her new programs. Since Caro does not have a public twitter or facebook, it was very hard, for me, to send her the suggestions. I even think that she has not seen the messages I sent.

    I would like to read your opinions about the songs I suggested.

    SP: Shooting Stars(Instrumental Version) by Bag Raiders(my favorite band ever!)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2GVaKUTyQ0

    LP: Cookie Breath by Nathan W. McKee

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP-M4eVg8LQ

    The two songs are very "Carolina". And I do not see another skater who could skate to them.

    So, what do you think?

    Hugs from Brazil!

    Not sure if you are aware of Kostner's official Twitter and Facebook accounts?

    Some of the entries there are written in the first person: e.g., 'I have revealed my music ..."; "I would like to tell you ..."; etc.
    Others make no pretense of being from the skater herself, and clearly are from Team Kostner in general.
    But if you want to leave no stone unturned in attempting to get your message into her own hands, I would not leap to the conclusion that these are black holes of no use.

    Virtue/Moir

    SD:
    The program features selections from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, kicking off with "Dream a Little Dream."
    "The second part is 'Muskrat Ramble,' which has a jazzy sound," Moir said. "The third piece is the well-known 'Dancing Cheek to Cheek.' We worked with (French-Canadian ballroom dance champion) Jean-Marc Généreux, who we first met 10 years ago."
    Zoueva's concept is ballroom but wth a twist.
    "Tessa and Scott are taking a more jazzy [approach] to the quickstep and foxtrot," she said.

    FD:
    Virtue and Moir will perform their free dance to selections from two turn-of-the-20th-century Russian composers, Alexander Glazunov and Alexander Scriabin.
    "The free dance was a longer process [than the short dance] because the music was specially arranged for us," Moir said. "We're using music from Glazunov's ballet Seasons and Scriabin's 'Piano Concerto in F-sharp minor.'"
    Dancer Sergei Volodin helped create new lifts, and Ontario dance instructor and choreographer Jennifer Swan assisted with movement. Zoueva picked the music and oversaw the work.
    "The program is about the man-woman relationship and how it changes throughout the seasons of life," Zoueva said. "The music is not unusual, but I cannot remember ever seeing it used for a free dance, although it is dance music including a waltz.

    Olympic champions to jazz it up in short, go classical route in free

    The IN article has bits of other news.
    - Virtue: "we have five new lifts and other new elements in our programs."
    - Per Zoueva, Finlandia likely will be V/M's first international competition. (As marikat previously reported in the V/M fan thread, they will skate their SD on Sat Aug 10 at the Quebec summer championships.)
    - "Virtue -- who had operations in 2008 and 2010 to correct compartmental exertion syndrome in her legs -- emphasized that full-time training has not been a problem for her."
    - Virtue says they don't know whether they will retire after Sochi. []
    - Zoueva will not reveal Davis/White's music until Champs Camp, but the article quotes Z: "Meryl and Charlie's short dance will be quick, designed to show flow and speed," Zoueva said. "The difference is day and night. The couples are super different."
