I got to thinking about the impending Olympic season and all the choices that will soon be revealed about who is doing what program. We've often times discussed "Warhorses"....those classical pieces that we can all hum in our sleep.
Here's a summer discussion quesion....What "Warhorse" classical piece of music would you choose for your favorite skater? For me, there are a couple...I'd love to see Michelle skate to Claire de Lune. It would be interesting to see if she could "fill up" all the empty spaces withing this impressionistic tone poem.
Another skater I'd love to see in moldy musical selections would be a guy, maybe johnny or jeff buttle, skate to Prelude to Afternoon of a Faun. I've seen several ladies do this, however can't recall any guys perfoming this one.
Oh, and just to keep it interesting, why not include skaters from the past? Toller skated to an operetic aria, anyone want to strap Janet Lynn with Tosca?
Now for you. I'm looking forward to hearing some of this answers...
to quote Mike Myer's Linda Eastman character on SNL....
"Warhorses; not War, not Horses....Discuss!"
