For all the Harry Potter and film music fans out there, my fav radio program EVER, The Score, on AllClassical.org is going to give us a sneak preview of the soundtrack to the new HP film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” today at 2:00PM PST. (if you need a time zone converter, go here.) It’s streamed live over the interwebs so you can listen anywhere in the world. If you can’t catch it today it will be archived and available on their site under the “Listen Now” button. It will also repeat next Sunday, November 21 at 2:00PM PST, but by then of course the movie will be out. I don’t know about you, but I never go on an opening weekend. I like to wait for the crowds to thin out so you can actually, I don’t know, ENJOY THE MOVIE, and not have to listen to people’s cell phones, and watch the iPhone screens light up the theater while texting. Dante should have reserved a circle in Hell for people who do that. But I digress.
From a quick glance at the movie listing on IMDB.com, Alexandre Desplat composed the original music used in the film, although I also saw a credit for John Williams for “Hedwig’s Theme”. It also looks like there’s some pop music used in it, they mentioned a song by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, “O Children.” Tune in if you can!
