Anyone know if there will be a special edition similar to the one released for HPDH Part 1? I've searched everywhere & not seen anything mentioned anywhere, as of today.

^It's possible. When was the DH 1 special edition announced? I thought it was after the titles and sample were released. I'm hoping they do release one.

But... I though John Williams was going to compose the final movie. :(

Since the last two movies are basically one story, it wouldn't make sense to have two different composers.

I kind of wish they had gone with Williams, or that Williams would have been available, for the last two films. I was a little bit underwhelmed with the score for DH1.

Mmm, Desplat DOES make beautiful music, but I definitely see what you mean (though "Snape To Malfoy Manor" will always remain a series favorite for me). But I have faith in him for Part 2, because he's done so much fabulous work before...I also heard that he's incorporating Williams' work, and if that's true, then I think it'll be pretty darn amazing.

Let's just cross our fingers.

There are one minute samples to be heard here, if you click on the player right above track titles:

I am blown away! I think I will very much like this score!

So some places have the music now. I wonder when Amazon will get them up?

Having listened to the one minute samples (and if you check YouTube you can find much longer samples) I was blown away. Even people at forums that I post on, people that are die hard Williams fans, say they are amazed by everything Desplat has done. You will find Hedwig's theme incorporated through many of the songs. I know it'll be a long day at work on the 12th knowing this cd is sitting in my mailbox waiting for me to get home.

I have a bipolar relationship with Desplat's music. In "Deathly Hallows Part 1", Obliviate and Snape to Malfoy Manor were beautiful, but everything else was so unmemorable. And I think it hurt that film. When a movie starts to sag, like when Harry, Ron, and Hermione were between the Death Eater attack at the diner and Ron's return to save Harry from the frozen lake, THAT'S when the score needs to step up. Desplat really let me and the movie down there.

I really hope he brings his A-game to the final Harry Potter. We need 25 good songs here, not just 1 or 2.

dude the score has leaked already its amazing....calm down

The problem I have with Desplat is that he makes soundtrack music and never music that stands for itself. Thus I'm not too impressed with his latest HP soundtracks he made. He'll get that one song that stands alone, but the others are just background music. No impressive to me.

I gotta agree with Ying_Yang. Tell a story with your music that will stand on it's own.

YouTube has all the complete songs listed. You can hear the complete soundtrack, song by song, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks Pheonix, I'll check it out

It truly is amazing; I'm so looking forward to having this arrive! It's some of his best work in my opinion. I think the standouts are "Courtyard Apocalypse", "Lily's Theme" and "Severus and Lily", but they are ALL beautifully done. Color me pleased.

Dont forget Showdown and Voldemorts end and Statues. Holy Crap you can hear John Williams definetly had something to do with this score!

For those that keep hoping to hear a little bit of "Hedwigs Theme" they need to keep in mind that this music was written for a younger very different "Harry Potter" not the current 'Harry' this one is older and certainly not as innocent as the one portrayed in the music for Hedwig's Theme".

Posted on Jul 14, 2011 3:45:33 PM PDT
There's more than enough "Hedwigs Theme" to satisfy in Desplat's score. Well done, sir!

After seeing the midnight premiere, seven hours ago, I can say with pleasure that the music is FANTASTIC in context. 'Courtyard Apocalypse' is especially great for the battle sequences, and 'Lily's Theme' being echoed throughout gave me chills. Loved every minute of it.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 15, 2011 6:14:56 AM PDT
That's great to hear, Callie! I got tickets for tonight!

Posted on Jul 15, 2011 10:02:51 PM PDT
I've been trying to find the last song at the end of the movie. It contains part of the original Harry Potter theme and it's not on the soundtrack. Is there a reason that it's in the movie but not in the soundtrack? That's not cool.
