pumped for this movie and score!

Bear McCreary is sooooooooooooooo much better than John Williams.
Nov. 8, 2010, 9:16 p.m. CST
The scores since Williams departed have ranged from fine to really good but there's just something about those first couple of movies score-wise that made them feel more magical to me. <p> Plus I think it would be fitting to bookend the series with Williams scoring. The man is a living wizard.

While the ultimate faux-Williams composer to pick would have been the perennially underemployed Bruce Broughton, Desplat is one of the finest film composers working today, and I'm excited to hear his take on the Potter universe.<BR><BR>Still, I'm holding out hope for Williams to score the second half of the movie next summer.

Can't wait to see this movie. Half-Blood Prince was so fuckin' awesome
Nov. 8, 2010, 10:12 p.m. CST
That scene should be pretty freaky to see in the movie.
Nov. 8, 2010, 10:19 p.m. CST
But these flicks have a high rewatchability factor with me. Even the 'bad' ones.

I agree with Tacom about Bathilda Bagshot. They could make that scene really disturbing. I've not heard much of Desplat's work besides The Golden Compass, so I don't really have a handle on his style. From what I've heard of this soundtrack so far, it seems like it will underline the emotional moments of the story very well.

Very Williams-esque with all the string runs and brass accents. THANK GOD they got rid of the last composer, his scores were embarrassingly bad.

Nice interview btw.

He'll help give the final scenes of the flim a truly epic feel, and it'll bring everything full circle.

is my favourite CD of the last ten years. Beautiful stuff.
Nov. 9, 2010, 7:04 a.m. CST
I'm really looking forward to hearing the new score. I usually like Alexander's scores.
Nov. 9, 2010, 7:22 a.m. CST
williams is too busy and cant do the last film..or so ive heard.
Nov. 9, 2010, 7:34 a.m. CST
I've been looking forward to this movie since I read the book. I hope they do it justice and find some way to translate all of the camping scenes well. I'm glad my 6 year old son is into it so I can see it in the cinema rather than wait for the blu ray release.

Did an okay to good job, I think. I don't understand any hatred of his work. It fit the movie and his Fireworks and Flight of The Order of The Phoenix themes were very hummable. And while John Williams is a master at creating leitmotifs, his action music is getting a bit monotonous. (beyond the character themes in the new Star Wars trilogy there is nothing new or exciting-- that 11 minute chase through Coruscant? ugh! ) Though I just listened to Alexandre Desplat's score and he tried to ape Williams, which is good and bad. Frankly I thought Patrick Doyle's score was pretty good. Harry In Winter was a damn good cue.
Nov. 9, 2010, 8:25 a.m. CST
What's the point of doing a seven-part series and not having the music thematically linked? So disappointing. Good interview as usual, Scorekeeper.
Nov. 9, 2010, 8:51 a.m. CST
but there's no way they'd do it - these final films are one film split down the middle, not a 7th and 8th film. Getting two different composers for two halves of one film wouldn't make any sense. Cheers for the interview Scorekeeper! :)

According to Mugglenet, as well. Apparently, David Yates made the offer as soon as he got through listening to the score for part 1. Makes perfect sense, really.

That intro scene and "Journey to the Cave" were fantastic. Really its one of the best Potter moments. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHMQDffmZkE&feature=related

The soundtrack was leaked a few days ago and it's all on Youtube at the moment, I'm surprised it hasn't been taken down already.
Nov. 9, 2010, 12:53 p.m. CST
He has two Spielberg movies to score.

He's scored exactly ONE movie since 2005.

Desplat did awesome work on Benjamin Button and Birth. His involvement bodes REALLY well for the last Harry Potter's. Looking forward to something truly special from him.
Nov. 9, 2010, 6:59 p.m. CST
Should have brought him back two movies ago! Terrible news, this!

Nov. 9, 2010, 8:04 p.m. CST
louisse, I agree. The first few seconds of that track from "Half-Blood Prince" were wonderful and atmospheric. My favorite moment from that score.
Nov. 10, 2010, 12:08 p.m. CST
He has some great cues in the last movie. A bit disappointed that Desplat didn't work the original cues in more, but hopefully they'll be in a few key moments. Would like to see some musical continuity in the series.
Nov. 11, 2010, 10:02 p.m. CST
C'mon ScoreKeeper, you droped the ball on that one brother!
Nov. 11, 2010, 10:03 p.m. CST
...but droped also!<p> EDIT BUTTON!!!
Nov. 15, 2010, 11:42 p.m. CST
I'm listening to the score right now, and it's brilliant. I really enjoy it. However, I REALLY wish he would have included the Hedwig theme a bit more. It's so iconic, and could be SO powerful in this movie if used as well as he uses all his new cues, but it feels like a missed opportunity here.
