Music to accompany Ice Dancing

Hamilton Saint

Recommended Posts

There was plenty of cheesy music as usual at the Winter Olympic figure skating events - not to mention lots of tacky costumes.


So I was pleasantly surprised to see Scott Moir and Tessav Virtue do their free-skate routine in the Ice Dancing event to the Adagietto movement from Mahler's Fifth Symphony. It's gorgeous music - used so effectively in Visconti's film Death In Venice.


Moir and Virtue's routine was beautiful - utterly captivating, in fact. So classy, compared to dreck like Phantom of the Opera. I've been listening to the Adagietto off and on now for the last few days.
