Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 Score [2010]

The score for Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is composed by Golden Globe award winning and Academy Award nominated film composer, Alexandre Desplat. Desplat follows John Williams, Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper in the Harry Potter series. Williams composed the first three films, Doyle scored the fourth film, while Hooper produced the soundtracks for the fifth and sixth films. Desplat stated that he will compose until September, with the soundtrack being released on 16th November 2010, three days before the film's release date. A 4-disc Limited Edition Collector's Box Set will also be released on December 21, 2010.

In an interview, Desplat stated, "We will start this Summer, it will take me all Summer. I will not have many holidays, but again it's for good reason - for the soundtrack. I would take every opportunity to use the fabulous theme composed by John Williams. I'd say it has not sufficiently been used in the latest movies, so if I have the opportunity and if the footage allows me, I'm going to arrange it...I shall make it with great honour and pleasure."

The film's orchestration started on 14 August 2010 with Conrad Pope (the orchestrator on the first three Potter films) collaborating with Desplat. Pope commented that the music is "exciting and vigorous" and "Those who love melodies, harmonies and emotions in their film scores should be pleased. Reminds one of the old days."

On October 29, 2010, the entire soundtrack was leaked. It appears that John Williams' original "Hedwig's Theme" is only used in only small parts of the soundtrack, however many cues from previous films are used.

Deathly Hallows is the first half of the last Harry Potter adventure, starring Daniel Radcliffe
, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Ralph Fiennes, and again directed by British filmmaker David Yates ( Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince). The script was also written again by Steve Kloves, of Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, and also Half-Blood Prince.
