I'm a fan of Stravinsky and I really want to see a proper Firebird skated.
Till now, no one has fully sadisfied me, but Machida came close.
I'm not sure about "The Blue Danube", but it also depends wich bit are they going to use.
I'm curious actually, to see them with a Waltz as FD. Did they had any before? I can't remember now.
But who knows, Anna Pogo has the fire in her heart, maybe she can do it. Her body type will look great with a decent costume. But I am not even sure her costume will look decent.
2007: Memoris of a Geisha
2008: Taiko Drum music
2009: Cinema Paradiso
2010: Tango Rhapsody
2011: Smile/Let's Face the Music and Dance
2012: Sun Valley Serenade soundtrack
2013: Memoirs of a Geisha
2014: Michael Jackson
In 2011, they skated to the Carousel Waltz for their SD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFm5BmwD7-M
Though I think the music selections will make this FD different from the SD.
However, I think he did a pretty good job in terms of intensity and keeping up with that music, which is hard.
I was stunned when I saw Juulia Turkkila with Stravinsky. What on earth was she thinking?!
Loved her costume though and she is so beautiful.
I have no doubt that Anna has the fire, and if she can make it she will look great. But it's a demanding and exhausting piece of music to skate. That's my only concern.
Come to think of Stravinsky, The Rite of Spring is not often used in FS.
I think that's his masterpiece.
