In the top 20 list of the biggest ever grossing films worldwide, six are Harry Potter titles. The music for the film series has featured the work of the cream of film composers including John Williams (who received Academy Award nominations for two films in the series), Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper and Alexandre Desplat. This unique collection of new recordings by The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra brings together the music from all eight films for the very first time.
Let me emphasize what is set forth above, that this is not a collection of tracks from previously released soundtracks, but rather is a new recording, both a digest and expansion of each of the themes. »

Music is an intricate part of movie making, and it is absolutely necessary to make sure that the composer should have a firm grasp on whatever genre the film is. This is especially true when you’re bringing a book or series of books that is loved by millions to life on the big screen. The trouble is finding the right composer when dealing with the magical world of Harry Potter. The seven books of the series were transformed into eight beautiful films – if not always adhering to the source material one hundred percent – and creating the musical soundscape was just as important as the sets, costumes, actors, or special effects. The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra have taken some of the finer selections from these eight films and presented them brilliantly in a new collection that is a treat for any Harry Potter fanatic.
