    Armin wants help picking out LP music

    Armin M. just tweeted that he would like any suggestions for his program music this season! Anybody have any suggestions that we could send him? I'm thinking...

    I don't know the Hummel (though I know he was roughly a contemporary of Beethoven, so that should be interesting and unusual), but the Kalinikov is a piece I like, and it has the virtue of not being commonplace. Very interesting choices!

    Hmmm. I've always wanted to see someone skate to the nocturne from Sibelius's incidental music for the play King Christian II.

    Something in the way of heroic film music.

    Call me a crazy geek, but I really think he could find something good on the soundtrack of the latest Star Trek movie. The samples I found sound like they were made for skating. http://www.movie-moron.com/?p=5531

    Wouldn't it be nifty if he used one of our suggestions?

    (...and yay! a Trek suggestion....)

    I think the movie "Timeline" has excellent music for skating choreography.

    Armin I say:

    you have a great look to do pieces from "The Mummy Soundtrack", with a gorgeous black and gold outfit, great eye liner - like the egyptians wear.

    Also a "Song for India" program, pieces from Taj Mahal, you have a eastern look.

    Or something totally different "Pan's Labyrinth" soundtrack great pieces there, full of light and shade.

    I would be happy to do the choreography

    I suggest the music used here. Anyone know what it is?

    (HAPPY PASSOVER TO ALL JEWS READING THIS!)

    Prokofiev's 1st violin concerto also comes to mind.

    I would love to see Armin skate to beautiful, passionate, silky classical music.

    Silver, I believe that's the Schindler's List main theme from the Spielberg film, composed by John Williams. There have been at least two beautiful programs skated to that music, one by Paul Wylie, and one by Katarina Witt. I believe an Israeli pair recently used it as well.

    (Happy Passover to you as well.)

    I thought of two lovely Sibelius pieces, which would have to be cut but which have much possibility for jumps and also artistry: the tone poem En Saga and the Nocturne from his incidental music for the play King Christian II (which I mentioned above but didn't link to). I always wanted to see Wylie skate to the latter.

    That was fast! What a community! Thanks, Olympia. (I'm not Jewish but thank you for the Passover wishes, too.) No wonder the music is so familiar. It would be amazing if Armin, who is Iranian-American, chose to skate to a music associated with Jews.

    Listening to Sibelius now.... the Nocturne is lovely.

    ETA: Paul Wylie's Schindler's List program - WOW.

    I'd like to see him skate to something upbeat & happy. He is a "nice" skater, very reliable & consistent, pleasant to watch but not exciting or with interesting choreography.
