Overview

This two-CD set contains a wide selection of popular classical pieces used by ice skaters in their programs at major international competitions, including the World Figure Skating Championships and the Winter Olympics.

Some of the music on this album will be heard at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver in the routines of the South Korean skater Yu-Na Kim (Gershwin's Piano Concerto in F) and her Japanese rival Mao Osada (Khachaturian's Masquerade), as well as those of other leading skaters.

The album also includes some specific recordings actually used in competition routines such as Maksim Mrvica's arrangement of Liszt's Totentanz (Michelle Kwan of the USA and Irina Slutskaya of Russia) and the violinist Vanessa- Mae's interpretation of "Nessun dorma" from Puccini's opera Turandot (Shizuka Arakawa of Japan and Denise Zimmermann of Germany).
