This soundtrack is incredible!

by Allen V. on 7/6/2002

John Williams has done it again! He creates excitement with each and every movie soundtrack he writes and this one will NOT disappoint! Quiddich and the Chess Match are gems and you can feel the action in the movie in each track. Even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, you will enjoy the music of John Williams. Read More

When Chris Columbus was tapped to direct the eagerly awaited film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's best-selling multi-generational children's book, he made it clear that the legendary John Williams was the only choice to compose music for this magical yarn. Having conjured up mystical moods for timeless tales ranging from STAR WARS to SUPERMAN, it's no wonder Columbus was eager to hand this challenging assignment off to the master.
With the world of HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE revolving around a boarding school for warlocks-in-training, the Long Island native uses a full range of symphonic splendor to make this one of his most memorable scores. The use of the delicate music box-like sounds of a celeste in the sweeping intro "Prologue" takes on a different meaning when this fairy-like sound is used with a darker edge on the closing "Hedwig's Theme." Key scenes get infused with Williams' crisp arrangements. "The Quidditch Match" benefits from a bellowing fanfare, abbreviated militaristic cadence and frantic strings, while the sinister aura cloaking "The Face of Voldemort" is defined by a perfect marriage of lower-end orchestration and forceful brass passages. John Williams pulls yet another compositional masterpiece out of his hat.
