Program Notes

The wizard lives on! The most memorable Harry Potter film themes are beautifully arranged into one manageable work. Over ten years, four different composers contributed truly magical scores to eight award-winning films. Included are Hedwig's Theme; Nimbus 2000; Hogwarts; Quidditch; Harry's Wondrous World; Fawkes the Phoenix; Harry in Winter; Dumbledore's Farewell; Voldemort; Elder Wand; Lily's Theme; The Friends; The Weasly Stomp; Obliviate; and John Williams's compelling Family Portrait theme as a fitting finale.

- Program Note by publisher


The Complete Harry Potter: Themes from all eight movies, is the culmination of arranger Jerry Brubaker’s project to arrange and incorporate the most beautiful and exciting themes from all of the Harry Potter movies into one work. Over a ten-year period, four different composers contributed poignant and truly magical scores to eight award-winning films. Take the Hogwarts Express with us now through Hedwig’s Theme, Nimbus 2000, Hogwarts Forever!, Quidditch, Voldemort, and many more. The finale to this expansive medley is John Williams’ Family Portrait theme, the melody used in the finale of the final film to send off future wizards as they board the Hogwarts Express.
