classical music in bmx PART 2



This is the only popular video part I know that uses classical music. The music is by Czech composer and conductor of marching bands Julius Fucik (1872 - 1916). The riding is by Erik Elstran, undoubtably one of the best bmxers alive. The editor uses this music to imply Elstran's riding is like a circus monkey or carnival freak, because of its wackiness.

Sean Burns' part in Anthem II started off with the third movement from Frederick Chopin's piano sonata no. 2 in B flat minor, op 35, but this was only for the intro and it turned into some aggressive heavy metal when the riding started.

I think there was a video trailor from sometime around 2002 - 2004 which was set to Aram Khachaturian's "Sabre Dance". I can't remember what the video actually was and it would be way too time consuming to try and figure it out.
