The Magical Music Of Harry Potter
LONDON - „Wizards, Wands and Witches” - the best songs and music from all Harry Potter films come to your city!
The award-winning film music from one of the most successful franchises in film history is now coming as a unique concert evening to your city with an ori- ginal actor, star soloists, a choir and symphonic orchestra.
Visitors will experience the most significant musical moments of Harry Potter: The program includes the film soundtracks of four-time Oscar winning compo- ser John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicolas Hooper, and Alexander Desplat as well as the best of the music from „Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”, which has received many awards in London and New York.
Our audience favourite, usually an actor from the Weasley family, sometimes another star from the Harry Potter franchise and universe, will make the con- cert unforgettable with all kinds of fun and good humour. Our popular presen- ter speaks about his experiences as an actor/actress in Harry Potter, and about friendship, adventure and love in the dangerous world of magicians. Visitors can expect to be enchanted by advanced light and laser technology as well as a unique sound dimension that is guaranteed to leave them with goosebumps. The visual and magical effects are set to let the hearts of all Harry Potter fans beat a little faster, while listening to the concert.
John Williams (Star Wars, ET, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park) composed the mu- sic for the first three films, like the famous “Hedwig’s Theme”, the leitmotif of the Harry Potter films, and “Double Trouble”, the classic Hogwarts motif with a children’s choir, as well as the funny “Aunt Marge’s Waltz” and “Witches, Wands and Wizards”.
Titles like the „Hogwarts Hymn” by Patrick Doyle, from the fourth Harry Potter film remind the audience of the mysterious and dark world of the Triwizard Tournament.
Nicholas Hooper has composed „Dumbledore’s Farewell” for the fifth and sixth Harry Potter films. He helped to shape and mature the Harry Potter music.
Alexandre Desplat created „Lily`s Theme” and has composed the music for the last two instalments of the film series - a grand and unforgettable final and musical experience.
The music is performed by The London Symphonic & Philharmonic Film Orc- hestra, which has been created for the Harry Potter concerts.
