Conrad Pope, film composer and orchestrator, has updated his Facebook with comments on the “Deathly Hallows: Part 1″ soundtrack:

Just finished the first week with the LSO of recording Alexandre
Desplat’s score to “HP7″. Harry Potter now occupies a new musical
universe. For Lovegood AD has written a charming, “groovin’” theme.
Dobby, too, is given a new “voice”. The emotional music reaches its
climax in Ron’s speech in the “wilderness” where the poetry of AD
conveys the emotion in a single chord’s voicing. Stay tuned.

The soundtrack will be released on November 16th. Thanks very much to UniversHarryPotter for the tip!

Avatar Imagesessionka says: I'm first yay (I hope)!!! And i'm not into the soundtrack that much!!!Avatar Imagepromote_elfish_welfare says: Ahh.. can't WAIT for this. :D Especially Ron's speech.. and Dobby's death. >_<Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: It sounds great! I love soundtracks from films and tv shows and will definitely be getting this before i see DH.Avatar ImageSindi says: <3 soundtracks! Cant wait for this one! :D Avatar Imageksddancer says: Yay soundtrack!!!!Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: Eloquent Avatar Imagenarglesohmy says: Yay! :D I can't wait for this to come out!Avatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: yayayayay!!!!!!! accio november!! Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: I LOVE LOVE AD! All his works are brilliant! I know I WILL LOVE this one more than any of his other scores!Avatar ImageMrPlinkett says: "Dobby, too, is given a new “voice”." Is that really necessary? John Williams gave Dobby a beautiful theme. Sigh. :( I really hope Williams returns for Part 2.Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: John Williams is back for part two! :) I really hope the last piece of music we hear is 'Hedwigs Theme', thats how the films started and i think it would have a beautiful symmetry if thats how it all ends. There is no other piece of music that makes me think of magic more than that theme does.Avatar Imageemilykirstyn says: i'm nervous about hearing it, but i'm interested in what he comes up with. i really hope they use "leaving hogwarts" (from CoS) at the end of part II !Avatar ImageMrPlinkett says: Exactly! When I read the epilogue William's 'Leaving Hogwarts' theme played in my head and I started tearing up lol. I totally agree, there needs to be a score that tells the story through themes.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: When I read The Prince's Tale, where they're getting on the Hogwarts Express, I hear the same theme as when Harry's starting out, but perhaps with a different orchestration.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I really hope that in DH Part 2 Snape gets as good a farewell theme as Dumbledore did in HBP.Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: Both 'Leaving Hogwarts' and 'Hedwigs Theme' have the same flute melody, whatever form its in, as long as i hear that melody then i'll be very happy. :)Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Yay soundtrack!Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Great. The music better be nice mainly for snape and hedwigAvatar ImagePetra says: They better do this good... I LOVE the music from trailer so I'm hoping it will be something like that...Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: I've really liked the last 2 films' soundtracks...hope this one is at least as good!Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: I'm so excited for the soundtrack... hope it's good.Avatar Imagewiltabone says: Looks InterestingAvatar Imageizziewitch says: bit iffy about this. The emotional musical climax is when Ron leaves? I certainly hope he's done something special for Dobby's death.Avatar Imagehermy007 says: yeah, me too. i absolutely love the soundtracks. i thought nicholas hooper did a great job with ootp and hbp, but im excited to see what desplat will do with this. (and im very happy that williams is returning to compose part 2.) should be great. :)Avatar ImageTheGleek77 says: coolAvatar ImageTheGleek77 says: coolAvatar ImageTheRisingPhoenix says: ...i just youtubed him and he did the New Moon score...not real happy about that :/ I like John Williams!! :(Avatar Imageathena lupen says: cool :DAvatar ImageTonks1 says: "John Williams is back for part two! :) I really hope the last piece of music we hear is ‘Hedwig's Theme’, that's how the films started and i think it would have a beautiful symmetry if tha'ts how it all ends.

Posted by vicki_the_house_elf *ROAR* on September 25, 2010, 02:12 AM I applaud your thinking Vicki_the_house_elf. I think that is how it should be. Hedwig's Theme is and always be the only musical sound associated with Harry Potter. It brings tears to my eyes. It has to be done at the end of Part II. Curious to hear what Alexandre Desplat’s has come up with. I only have the first three soundtracks. Gave up after POA. Didn't sound like Harry Potter to me. When I listen to John William's score I know exactly where in the movie we .are. Can't do that with anyone else though. Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Oh how fun!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That sounds great! I mean over the years the sound of Harry Potter has been getting better and better. In the Order of the Phoenix the hairs on my back rose when I heard "Harry's Wondrous World" on the flute. And in the Half-Blood Prince, I burst in sobs when hearing the background music on Dumbledore's death. In the Deathly Hallows, I know for sure the music will get better and better.Avatar Imagebella vita says: This guy makes me nervous and scared as hale! He did the score for New Moon and while the music was beautiful on its own it just didn't fit the movie at all! He refused to even listen to the previous score from the original Twilight movie which certainly explains the disconnect, but I just desperately hope that he didn't take that same stance with DH and refuse to listen to any of the previous HP scores because simply making up whatever music you want just doesn't work with an HP score especially not for part of DH!Avatar Imagebella vita says: This guy makes me nervous and scared as hale!

(I couldn't really understand half of that but it sounds great)! I always love the HP soundtracks and am playing the music from the Goblet of Fire on my violin and I love the way it sounds!Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: can't wait for it!! :DAvatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: it better be goodAvatar ImageSlyBones says: I hope the music is as beautiful as some of the themes for HBP.Avatar Imagemystiqueminx says: cant wait!Avatar Image2tal says: This waiting and reading about the next film is very emotional. There is so much in these stories that speaks to the good and bad, the downs and ups, of life. Every time I pickup one of the books - and I've done that a lot in the run up to DH part 1 - I feel like I am right back in it, back in the world. It is lovely and sad and too wonderful all at once.Avatar ImageFilthyMudblood___ says: I love Alexandre Desplat! He did the score for New Moon and it really was lovely, for a Twilight film. So I'm definitely buying this one!Avatar Imagegreenfinch says: so excited for this!Avatar ImageFresca says: I have really enjoyed the music throughout the movies. I hope that Dobby's new voice will express his courage.
