    Post What music would you love to see in programs next season???

    I am so over Swan Lake!! Yes, some have interpreted it beautifully, but I think it's never going to be remembered as "Oksana's program" or "Sasha's program" because so many greats have performed to it over the years.

    What music selections do you think are overdone? And what selections would you enjoy seeing in next seasons programs?

    LP or SP-
    I would love to see someone use the score from "Unfaithful" composed by Jan Kaczamerk. Very powerfull and has intricate sections followed by subtle sections. Perfect for someone like Kwan because she tends to like exotic music.

    SP- Rhapsody in Blue. I know!! This is just about as hackneyd as Swan Lake but I love it!!! Im such a hypocrit. :D

    Exhibition- River of Dreams by Billy Joel or maybe the Gypsy Kings cover of Hotel California (it was used in the big lebowski i think)

    The 1812 Overture.. I don't think anyone's ever skated to it... and it's one of my favorite pieces!

    I think Pirates of the Carribean and The Passion soundtracks have some great music selections as well

    Actually it seems that Pirates of The Carribean is a very popular choice this year amongst younger skaters, so we might see it this seaon with the elites.

    There are only two senior skaters who can do justice to Pirates of the Caribean, and that's Alexander Abt (please, COI, sign this guy for Tour II) and Kevin Van der Perren. And maybe Gregor Urbas.

    I would like someone to use Edvin Marton's version of Bittersweet Symphony. It's exactly four minutes long, so it could be a ladies FS, or it could be edited to make a fab SP. Lots of highlights for footwork and spins, not to mention a great place at the beginning for a combination jump. I think I've thought too much about this....

    Actually, I expect to hear more Edvin next year because every piece of music on that CD can be skated to. I just hope none of the skaters I dislike choose it. :D

    I love everything to do with Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm afraid of what some of the interpretations will look like though. Please no more fake sword fighting! Especially if you're a singles skater without an "opponent" to fence!

    LOL



    But then again, everytime a skater falls in a program he could always said that he was reinacting walking off the plank.

    I just thought of another song I would like someone to use for a show number... there is this great version of somwhere over the rainbow/what a wonderful world by a hawaiian artist. It was featured in those great etoys.com adds in 99 and 2000

    I'd love to see someone use the music from the film "The Mission". It is so beautiful. I know Karen Kwan used it at Nationals in 96 and Elvis Stojko also used it as a LP during the early 90s. And why does hardly anyone skate to Pachelbel's "Canon in D"....maybe because it has become a cheesy wedding standard (but I still love it!).

    And Liz, I complain about over used music too, but I always love to see "Turandot"....my favorite Puccini piece that never seems to get old for me.

    I think Alexander Abt is scheduled to tour on Japan and also do shows in Russia in a tour that is hosted by L&A (not confirmation of it) but he said in an interview and he said something about 10 shows there, then he also has a tour in France but he said that they never know with them since they do everything at the last minute, so eventhough I think it would great if COI cast him, I don't think he has time. I bet Plush will invite him for his shows and that during the dates of Tour II which is also why Plush is not doing it.

    Edvin Marton? yes, someone skated to First Date again!!

    I think Todd Eldredge's LP in 2001 used the 1812 music.

    Take 5, Blues for Clock, Caravan, In the Mood

    Tosca, Madame Butterfly, La Treviata, Carmen, Turondut,

    Swan Lake, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Romeo and Juliette

    4 Seasons, Variations on a Theme

    Anything by Bond

    The music by Philip Glass from "the Hours". Some really beautiful intricate piano music, Jeff Buttle could do justice to!
