I agree with you, Vash01. Nobody "owns" a piece of music, and each skater who skates to a certain piece of music can lend his/her/their interpretation to it. Granted, "Bolero" will always be associated with the great T & D, but that doesn't mean that another great skater can't take this music another direction, or at least bring out another outstanding performance.Originally Posted by Vash01
What I would like to see, however, is for skaters to refrain from skating to the same half dozen or so pieces of classical music. How many more "Carmens" are we going to see? Yes, the music is great for skating, but it's been skated to by SO many other skaters.
Just my two cents, of course.
