PostSubject: Aliona Savchenko/Robin Szolkowy thread   11.07.07 8:41

Since Plushenko has his own thread here, they deserve one too!

Here is the latest article on these two (pretty much a summary of the past season):
http://goldenskate.com/articles/2007/071007.shtml

Quote :
Savchenko and Szolkowy debuted their new short program to music from the Asoka soundtrack (an Indian Bollywood Film) on July 7 at a club show in their home town of Chemnitz. (...) According to spectators, the program is very original and elegant. Aliona wore a blue costume in Indian style and Robin a flesh-colored shirt and white trousers. Their free program is still under construction and the skaters and their coach are not yet ready to reveal the music.

I'm not a bollywood movies fan so I have never heard of "Asoka" but I can't wait to see their program! :cheergo2:

Thanks for the thread, Malgosia! :super:
I read that, too, and I think it sounds interesting. Also, I read somewhere that Aljona wants to practice the throw 3a, and the throw 4toe!! Shocked Perhaps just one at a time, Aljona...? Suspect

I'm looking forward to seeing them again next season & that sp sounds interesting, Aliona must look gorgeous in blue, but I think I would prefer Robin to be wearing a coloured shirt - at least in competitions!

It seems that they are keen to challenge the Chinese pairs in the big throws - Aliona must have great faith in Robin's throwing - though I think they have so much else in their skating & programmes it may not always be necessary to take such risks!

I saw a photo on GS - where it has already been touted as a contender for "worst costume of the season". Rolling Eyes Aliona's blue is lovely, but I do think Robin should have a 'proper' shirt, he only looks half-dressed! mdr

I like Aliona's costume but I agree with you about Robin's, I don't like the "shirtless" effect scratch

it must be the worst costume of the season.....at least it will be a big contender! Savchenko's costume reminds me of Domnina's costume from last season's FD.

Maybe the costumes they're wearing are somewhat movie-related scratch

hey, cool, a Aliona & Robin-Thread Smile I'm glad that they won the goldmedals at worlds. After 11 years there's finally gold again for Germany. I hope that their win makes figure-skating a little more popular in Germany, that would be great.

Thanks for the article, starg!! Very Happy

I heard a rumour about the "Schindler's List" program ... so it seems to be true. I love this soundtrack, but it is imo no easy stuff (neither is the movie!!). So, if a skaters manages to pull this music off, which I think is artistically demanding , I'm sure I would love the program and probably cry the first moment I see it. But if skaters can't really connect to that music, I guess I would hate the whole program, because it ruins the music (and what's behind it!!!) for me.
What I want to say: I guess it is a hard job to create an appropriate program to that music (and what people connect with it) but I also hope that S&S can do it!!! It could be a masterpiece!!

Quote :
are also expected to take part in the Nebelhorn Trophy in late September in Oberstdorf
I'm looking forward to see them and the new program there!! :incass:

I totally agree with Nina's post. Picking piece of music that carries such a huge emotional baggage is risky but also challanging. I believe they'll create an outstanding program and I'm so looking forward to see it!!!

Oh, Schindler´s List should be their music? That would be incredible! I do believe that they are able to express that music and mood of it perfectly. Aliona is such an emotional skater and Robin matches her very well. Keeping my fingers crossed for them on this :super:

Thanks for the info!

I guess we can see their new SP costumes here:


I think I liked Aliona's previous hair better. Don't know what to think about the costumes...
The glimpse of their SP is here (difficult to identify the music piece though):
