5.0 out of 5 stars Desplat Strikes Again July 12, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'd like to begin by saying that I absolutely LOVE the works of John Williams, and often think that there is no better film score orchestrator than him, but having listened to HP7 Pt2 I would put Desplat right up there with John. That is really saying something. I am a retired musician, teacher and lifetime film critic, and I am just SPELLBOUND by the orchestral sounds and colors and the way Desplat matches up action with character with surroundings...the whole piece. I say congratulations for a work well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Potter Perfection, Part 2 August 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Fifteen years after J.K. Rowling first introduced the world to Harry Potter, the saga has finally ended. The interim has seen the publication of seven books and the release of eight films about the life and adventures of the eponymous boy wizard, culminating in this film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, the second installment of the series' epic finale. It's been a long journey for both Rowling and her teenage protagonist - the books have become some of the most successful literary works of the last 100 years, the films have grossed a combined $2.3 billion at the US box office alone - but at the end of it all, Harry Potter will likely remain one of the most beloved series of novels and films for many generations to come.

Be warned; from here on in, there are spoilers, because it's impossible to talk about the music without revealing some important plot points. That plot, of course, picks up where the last movie finished, with Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) running for their lives from the clutches of the evil dark wizard Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Everything finally comes to a head with Harry and his friends desperately searching for the last Horcruxes (pieces of Voldemort's soul hidden in magical objects) while his school - Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - is defended from hordes of Voldemort's Death Eaters to the last by it's staff and students. As always, the crème de la crème of British acting talent is on display here, and the film is ably directed by David Yates, marking his fourth time at the helm of a Potter movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps You've Missed the Point (with update) July 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm quite surprised by the negative reactions to Alexandre Desplat's splendid score for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2." The general consensus is that the score isn't big enough, loud enough, epic enough for this, the final film in the series. Hard to say, given that none of us has actually seen it yet. But I for one am thrilled that Desplat has written nothing like the typical action picture score, all cacophony and bluster. Scores like Howard Shore's for "The Two Towers" or pretty much anything that Hans Zimmer puts his name to bore the pants off me. Not that those scores don't work when you're actually watching them in a theater, but a CD (or MP3) soundtrack is a home listening experience, and as that, I find this latest Harry Potter score extremely successful.

Desplat ratchets up the excitement when he needs to, as in the tracks "The Tunnel" and "Underworld." And "Battlefield," "Broomsticks and Fire" and "Showdown" are all as dramatic as their titles would suggest. But the series (both the books and the films) has never been about action as much as the intimate, personal relationships between the characters; and it's in the quiet moments that Desplat excels. By all accounts, the scene revealing Snape's true nature is the emotional core of this last film, and Desplat has written a gorgeous piece of music to accompany it, full of longing and heartbreak. "Harry Surrenders" and "Procession" are suitably suspenseful and solemn, given what is happening in the story. "Diadem" is mysterious, "A New Beginning" full of the elegiac tone with which JK Rowling herself ended it all. (Of course, we will have to see if this track truly accompanies the film's epilogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and moving!! March 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Harry Potter franchised was robbed this year at the Oscars. Not only did none of the actors receive a nomination for the films, but neither did this wonderfully crafted soundtrack. This is an incredible soundtrack especially if you have watched the film.

Statues - Wonderful build-up to the battle. Professor McGonagall casting her spell to protect the castle.

The Grey Lady - The professors are carefully weaving protective spells around the castle while Harry discovers the location of the diadem.

Lily & Severus - This is a wonderful tribute to love at first sight, enduring love, and ultimate loss. Shades of Nicolas Hooper's themes from The Half-Blood Prince are carefully woven in to add to the nostalgic mood of the piece.

A New Beginning - This is at the end of the movie and very fitting. It's a reflective piece that is hopeful yet bittersweet. Only wish that they had added the extended cut with John Williams's themes.

Overall, one of my top 10 favorite soundtracks of all-time. My opinion of the Oscars sunk to an all-time low for overlooking this gem because of their snobby disdain for the franchise and their odd facsination with Martin Scorses.

Deathly Hallows Part 2 Limited Collector's Edition Soundtrack
Given the fact that Part 1 did not do extremely well or receive a very positive response, I also sincerely doubt it. I bought and love the limited edition of Part 1, and dearly wish for similar treatment of Part 2, but I do not have high hopes. One can only hope, and harasse the corporations... Read more

******POSSIBLE SPOILER********

No, it was just a rumor that was confirmed a while back. But, according to people that have had a chance to go to special previews, John Williams' song 'Living Hogwarts' is played at the end.
