The Harry Potter films, based on the novels of the British writer Joanne Kathleen Rowling, are one of the most successful in the history of cinema.
Undoubtedly, music composed especially for the series by super talented and honoured composers also plays an important role in this success.

At the March  22nd, you will have a unique opportunity to listen to the brightest motifs from all eight Harry Potter films.
John Williams (Star Wars, ET, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park) composed the music for the first three films, like the famous Hedwig’s Theme, the leitmotif of the Harry Potter films and Double Trouble - the classic Hogwarts motif with a Children’s choir, as well as the funny Aunt Marges Waltz and Witches, Wands and Wizards.
Titles like the „Hogwarts Hymn” by Patrick Doyle (Bridget Jones's Diary, Carlito's Way, Brave), from the fourth Harry Potter film will bring the audience into the mysterious and dark world of the Triwizard Tournament.
Nicholas Hooper has composed the „Dumbledores Farewell” in the fifth and sixth Harry Potter film. He helped to shape and mature the Harry Potter music and Alexandre Desplat (The Twilight Saga, The Queen, The King's Speech, The Shape of Water) with „Lily`s Theme”, who has composed the music for the last two works of the film series, has created a grandiose and unforgettable final and musical experience.
