  1. As many might have already heard, Yulia Krivikhina (Yulena) has recently published her analysis of Yuzuru's Origin - a truly enlightening and informative text showing the complexity and depth of his free program. I humbly offer my translation of her work. If there are any corrections, please, don't hesitate to let me know!
  2. Hi everyone, recently I had the fortune to talk to Edvin Marton, the composer of 'Art on Ice' and 'Magic Stradivarius', the two songs of Origin. He kindly answered my questions about the creation of these songs (well, mainly about 'Art on Ice'), his friendship with Plushenko, Kings on Ice & ice shows, and then I asked some questions about Yuzu, too. He was there at last year's Rostelecom Cup to cheer for Yuzu and that was also the first time they met. He talked about Yuzu very nicely and there was a warmth in his voice, I don't even know how many times he mentioned that Yuzu was fantasic and that he is a genius. I hope you'll all enjoy this short interview cr [x] * * * Q: Evgeni Plushenko skated to your pieces of music, Art on Ice, Magic Stradivarius and King of the Forest for his Tribute to Nijinsky program in the 2003/2004 season. These songs were released on your second album, Strings ’N Beats. How did you compose them and why were these songs chosen for the Nijinsky program? Edvin Marton: One of the organizers, Reto Caviezel, and the producer of the Art on Ice Show, Oliver Höner invited me to the show in 2003. Höner himself was a skater and he is the artistic director of the show. At that time, Art on Ice was the most spectacular show in Europe and Höner invited to me to write the opening for it. And then I wrote Art on Ice, which later was released on my second album as well. When I performed at the show, Plushenko also skated there, and we became friends after that. He told me that he liked my songs so he asked me to give him one of my albums. Art on Ice was in February, which was before the end of the figure skating season. Shortly after the season ended he contacted me that he’d like to skate to my songs the next season, and then this became the Tribute to Nijinsky program. Q: Did you help Plushenko with music editing? EM: Yes, first him and his team cut a version and they asked me to refine it. So, yes, in the end I helped him. Q: You’ve been friends with Evgeni for many years. Please, tell me a bit more about your friendship with him. EM: As I mentioned before we’ve been friends since his Tribute to Nijinsky program. I had been studying in Russia for 8 years so I can speak Russian very well too but at the end music brought us together and we started working together then. I’ve been working as a producer as well, and after a while, I started thinking about doing a new show. Art on Ice has a bigger budget and it is a more expensive show, so I talked to Ari Zakarian and Evgeni about the possibility of a new show which would be less expensive. Ari is a former skater himself, he has lots of experience, and he works as an agent in the world of figure skating, which means that without him it isn’t really possible to organize a show. So that's how we made Kings on Ice. Q: Plushenko ended his competitive career at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi. Are you following the sport, and do you talk about figure skating with Evgeni? EM: Of course, I’m following it and we talk about it, too. We talk about it particularly when we organize a Kings on Ice show, because then we invite many skaters, and then I read about them, whether they’re still active or they’re already retired etc. Q: Yuzuru Hanyu won the Olympic gold medal in Sochi, and four years later, he became the first skater after 66 years who defended his Olympic gold medal. It is a huge achievement. After the Olympic Games, he decided to skate to Art on Ice and Magic Stradivarius in his free skate as a tribute to his favourite skater, Plushenko, and he named his program ’Origin’. How did you react about his music choices? EM: I was very happy about his decision. I think it is fantastic that such a genius like him chose my music and that he skates to these pieces. It made me feel really happy. Q: Did you help him editing the original tracks? EM: No, him and his team edited the music. They asked me to do it on their own and I said of course, they can do however they prefer to do it. There are musicians who don’t really like if any notes are changed in their songs, but I’m flexible when it comes to it. Let them soar and spread their wings! I give them freedom and to me, the most important is if they feel fine. In this sense, I don’t like restrictions. Q: Last year you were there at the Rostelecom Cup in the middle of November, when Yuzuru won the competition. EM: Yes, I was there in Moscow at the competition. I had a concert two weeks later, which I promoted in the television – I asked the TV to arrange it the same weekend as the competition so that I could go to the Grand Prix as well. Q: On the morning of the free skate, Yuzuru injured his ankle when he fell from a quadruple jump, and he only had a couple of hours to completely change the layout of the skate. Did you see him skate for the first time, and how did you like the program? EM: Yes, it was the first time seeing him skate live. Because of the injury, the situation at the competition was unusal, and it’s difficult to judge how he’d have skated without this, he’d have skated more effortlessly. He’s very professional and a genius but even for him this situation was really difficult. Q: After the competition you met him and did you talk to him, too? EM: Yes, we met after the competition and he invited me to Japan, to an ice show. Now everyone is focusing on the World Championships, but let’s see what happens after that – I’d like to go there if we can manage it. Ice shows in Japan are a bit different than for example, Russia or other shows in Europe. In Russia, there are the skaters of course but the focus is also on the musicians and sometimes there are other forms of arts, too, like ballet. In Japan the focus is more on skating. So it’d be nice to go there and play for Japanese audience. Q: Since the Rostelecom Cup Yuzuru couldn’t skate at any competition, but he’ll return at the World Championships soon. EM: I think he’ll be absolutely ready for the World Championships. [smiles] Q: Would you ever like to write a piece of music for one of Yuzuru’s programs if there was a request for it? EM: Yes, of course. Music is my life, and it is very important to me if I can write new music for skaters. Q: What are your plans for 2019? EM: My latest album was released not so long ago, it’s my first album that includes only my own songs. The arrangements and harmonies are different on this album which I like. I’ve just had a concert in St. Petersburg, and later this year I will have concerts in Bucharest, in Baku and then in Vienna with the Strauss orchestra in October. In December, we’re also going to have a Kings on Ice show in Cluj Napoca (Romania) with Evgeni and we’ll try to invite big skaters to the show. Q: Thank you very much for the interview! EM: Thank you. * * *
  3. Hey everyone! I need help looking for the original photo in this Instagram post. It's of Yuzuru after his long program. I've linked the Instagram post as well as the photo, it's the very first photo in the post that I'm trying to look for because I really want to use the HQ of it as my phone background. I tried doing a reverse search on Google Images but it couldn't its origins. https://www.instagram.com/p/BqSDleTBW37/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1quvoqtv3vhdq https://scontent-lax3-2.cdninstagram.com/vp/6b7937a1a7fe24cceb5b6eda8d814502/5C7572E3/t51.2885-15/e35/45946149_923615444505570_8863514291616461011_n.jpg
