Best of Plushenko ~ Edvin Marton ~ (Featuring never before seen fan pictures!!)

Published on Feb 9, 2014
This video from Emmy award winning composer and performer Edvin Marton features never before seen fan pictures sent from across the globe to create a unique video to give his friend Evgeni Plushenko the energy to skate like never before at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games.

There's a genuine camaraderie that encompasses the Olympic Stadium.
A stranger from afar, something unexpectedly happened to me last Sunday and although I was cheering my country it was Plushenko's stardust that filled my eyes and heart. An amazing Olympian who left me with a starry night to remember.

After watching Plushenko skate that night I was left with remnants of the music he had chosen for his program floating in my head; I just had to find it, and I did!
It happens to be a collection of famous musical scores, specifically ones taken from Plushenko's past programs. A compilation put together by Plushenko's friend , emmy award winning composer and performer Edvin Marton. Not only was this new musical compilation destined to be absorbed like a sponge by the audience for it's profound spirited intensity of the combined movements but also for being loved passages of time, Plushy's time. Plushenko used every bit of his unique and amazing talent in his performance, floating on air high above the ice in every jump with ease and exquisite interpretation to each of the musical pieces marking periods in history . Definitely a genius idea in my mind ; that, I think was part of the magical program Plushenko  and Marton devised.
The music soared and ignited the fire in his exuberant heart, aflame with all of the apical of spirits of his homeland partisans and now the world's.
He left us enchanted.

“When he is on the ice, the soul of Russia is on the ice.”

Thank you both Plushy and Edvin , for an unforgettable show.

Until Later,


Hey Gloria, look what I found….directly from Russia!

Yes Plushenko is one of the best I've seen. Unfortunately I missed it and wish I had seen him skate. I'm going to listen to the music in a few minutes. First I need my morning coffee and since husband is off work today, I don't want to wake him. I'm excited to listen to the music because then I can see him skating. I will find a video online some where to watch him skate. Very nice post. Thank you.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
