Or-- I would need to play around with the music on editor and see if I could make a cut that would fit under 4:10. Too lazy for that since I'm not getting paid
I'm sure Yuna and David are aware, they are professionals and made creative choices. I just don't happen to agree this time. I think to really bring out the performance in Adiós Nonino you need a deep and moving interpretation. What a performance it could have been, coming from a 23 year old woman who has matured beyond her years since that teenage girl we got to know in the last quad.
My sadness about the program is because it feels the approach is cavalier, like we are getting something we've already seen from Yuna years before, just different music playing in the background. Lackluster is a good word.
BUT, I reserve the right to change my mind depending on the final product. It's not over until it's over, and we'll know next month at Sochi. I will keep my fingers crossed until then.
No matter what, we got Send in the Clowns this year, which is at least one more program I can watch over and over again.
sorry i felt like her les mis program is overrated... yeah.. the music cut is more relatable.. but in terms of choreography it was underwhelming..in other words it was generic.. at least yuna is trying to get out of her comfort zone this time and taking a risk with the music they used for adios.. it's complex and hard to grasp.. but when you look at the choreography it takes a lot to appreciate it..
the only reason why some are considered les mis a better program was because she skated clean to it twice..
HalfTriple, here's another idea. I mentioned in the Euro's thread I thought Julia just attacks, attacks, attacks in her FS. It comes off monotonous to me. There's no interpretation at all. I get the feeling watching her that her approach is -- if she just grits her teeth and tries harder on the next element, the audience will be moved (like that counts for interpretation?). She is young so it's not surprising she would think that way.
In Adiós Nonino, Yuna kind of gave the same vibe, but in a more advanced way. I didn't realize before, but now the idea resonates with me. In the same way that Julia just attacks, attacks, attacks element after element, I feel that Yuna just floats from music note to music note. Oh, an element? There, it's done. Almost without will it's done and better than anyone else in the world. The elements just get in the way while she floats from one note to the next.
I'm not sure I like that though in Adiós Nonino. I think the music is too deep and requires more emotional focus. There's a depth that I long for when I watch the program, whereas in Gershwin, floating from one note to the next worked really well. I do think Yuna has been working harder on presentation since Nationals so she might still have some surprise for us.
