Harry Potter Best Composers: Here’s Everything you need to know about the music and compositions of this popular film series

Based on the eponymous novels by author J. K. Rowling, the Harry Potter film series has a special place in our hearts. Starting with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) and ending with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (2011), this movie has never failed to amaze us.

Apart from the direction, performance and so many factors, one thing which left a major impact on this series and on the audience was its soundtracks that we still remember to date. And for sure, we will never be going to forget it as all those soundtracks are still somewhere in our mind which comes out whenever we think about Harry Potter films, that’s how impactful its music is.

From the past many years, there have been four different composers who have worked on the worldwide popular Harry Potter films. John Williams was the one who scored the first 3 films i.e., Philosopher’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, and Prisoner of Azkaban. On the other hand, the second entry was adapted as well as conducted by William Ross because of the conflicting commitments of Williams. The scores of the film were composed by John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper, as well as Alexandre Desplat.

The most popular Hedwig’s Theme was also the one which was created by Williams and is used in every film in the series.

Though Hedwig’s Theme is the most iconic ones and can be heard in every part of the film series its other scores have been also quite impactful as Hedwig’s Theme, such as “Harry’s Wondrous World” or “A Window To The Past”.

It’s quite understandable that the fans miss John Williams’ work in the later installments where he didn’t compose. But we must not forget that his replacements were also just talented as he is. Just as Williams’s creative quality brought out the warmth of the Wizarding World, the same as the score by Patrick Doyle for Goblet of Fire also brought the maturity of the book just perfectly.

While Nicholas Hooper giving the score with Order of the Phoenix and the Half-Blood Prince, gave us the amazingly different score that was wildly diverse from each other and the rest of the series.

The score for Phoenix which was a political thriller was inclined heavily in the direction of fantasy. At the same time, Prince was a much soberer as well as emotional. The range of differences between both the soundtracks is quite insane and amazing as well.

After that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts, One and Two arrived with a new composer Alexandre Desplat. Though it was a little disappointing for Williams fans that he didn’t score for the final parts of the movie, the score by Alexandre Desplat won everyone’s heart.

The soundtrack was beyond our expectations and the theme of the movie was beautifully woven into the soundtrack which made us quite speechless from its opening moments of the movie itself. In the end, Hedwig’s theme was also replaced with a sad tune that seamlessly summarizes the gravity of the sacrifice of Lily Potter.
