Program

The novels featuring young magician Harry Potter, a pupil at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, achieved immense popularity among children and teenagers in the first decade of this century. Following the success of the books, the stories were turned into a film series by Warner Bros. The cinema version also enjoyed unprecedented success: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and the two parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows are among the fifty greatest box office successes of all time. The saga’s soundtrack was entrusted to John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper and Alexander Desplat. The mood of the music reflects the events and characters in each film, from Williams’s magnificent “Harry’s Wondrous World” to the dark atmosphere of “Courtyard Apocalypse” and the vibrant rhythm of “Voldemort’s End” by Desplat. This concert is a great opportunity to hear music that does not really require images: it has a character of its own and transports us to a fascinating world of sound.
