Mao Asada's Olympic Music: Rachmaninoff Prelude in C Sharp Minor Op. 3

The women's free skate program on the Olympics last night was an altogether impressive show. During which, I was really intrigued by the dark music that accompanied Mao Asada on her silver-medal performance. So a little Google magic later, I've identified it as Sergei Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C Sharp Op. 3.

Originally a composition for the piano, Mao skated to an orchestral version like the one shown below by the Kremlin Chamber Orchestra.

  1. You're not the only one who just had to figure what that song was! Great choice.
