The Music of Harry Potter
Soloists, singers and musicians of the Cinema Festival Symphonics conducted by Stephen Ellery - Mercatorhalle
Program Info: Spectacular light and canvas animation!
The magic of Harry Potter! In the list of the 20 most successful films worldwide Harry Potter productions occupy six (!) Places. Accordingly, the soundtracks of John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicolas Hooper and Alexander Desplat became popular.
Written by John Williams, who composed the music for the first three films, is also the famous "Hedwig's Theme", which is now considered the main theme of the Harry Potter films.
One of the musical highlights is "Double Trouble" from "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban". This main theme by John Williams is recited by a choir upon arrival at Hogwarts.
Another key motive of this film block is "Aunt Marge's Waltz", composed for the visit of Harry's Aunt Magda, who is inflated by Harry like a balloon and literally blows up. The composition by John Williams is correspondingly ironic and witty.
"A Window To The Past" is another highlight. This leitmotif is picked up in the movie whenever Harry thinks about his parents. The topic is deliberately kept very emotional.
"The Hogwarts March" is the only march of all Harry Potter films and must not be missed. This march from "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" is played exclusively by wind instruments and was composed by Patrick Doyle.
In "Harry In Winter" from the same film, the strings immediately catch the eye, which enchant the piece in a very special way and give this film music a very special touch.
The musical leitmotiv from "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is called "Dolores Umbridge", composed by Nicholas Hopper, and is always used in the film when the figure Dolores Umbridge occurs. A very nice piece in classical tradition!
Another highlight of this magical concert is the leitmotif "Obliviate" from the movie "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". It is used when Hermione applies the Obliviate spell to her parents.
"Harry Potter - live in concert" is a magical evening of a very special kind. Full of sound, full of atmosphere, unique!
Using state-of-the-art technology, the formidable, 100-member ensemble of the Cinema Festival Symphonics, led by renowned conductor Stephen Ellery, will take the Harry Potter fans on a musical journey through all 8 Harry Potter films. Soloists, choir and orchestra celebrate a unique tonal force, which dives fully into the world of magic and provides many goosebumps moments.
Elaborate screen animations and visual effects let the emotions beat to striking heights.
