Harry Potter - Live to Projection Concerts

Recommended Posts

For anyone going to PoA in Rotterdam: it will have a choir! Spoke to a friend tonight who told me his sister is in it: she’d been singing “Double Trouble” at home all the time!

I went to see Prisoner of Azkaban in Rotterdam, and it was amazing. A couple of the great things about it:

- the choir, obviously

- the live back-and-forth mixture of source music and underscore was pretty incredible; must have been a nightmare to conduct and perform.

- you could hear the quieter underscore so much better than in the film; it was almost like listening to new JW music

- they played the entire end credits music (except for the Hedwig theme and Pettigrew motif that closes the film)

- the one drawback of this otherwise perfect film has always been the rather low mix of the score: this live to projection fixes that, and it's just an mind-blowing experience from beginning to ending.

Highly, highly recommended, if you have the chance to go to this.

I am expecting POA to be performed in London next year, given that both PS and COS tickets are selling so well.

I think I need travel to England to see my favorite Azkaban, they have done now the first two Potters  in Finland but probably not the next one.

I really hope they decide to perform the third film's score here like they did with the previous two.

My wife and I are seeing Sorcerer's Stone live to projection this Saturday night in Providence, RI.  Can't wait!

I went to see Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets this evening at the Royal Albert Hall, the first of five performances over the weekend.  It was fantastic!  The BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Justin Freer was on excellent form, played the entire end credits music and was also accompanied by the English Chamber Choir.

 

I had only seen the film once before and that was long enough ago that I did not remember much of it, so it was nice to be able to enjoy it and reacquaint myself with the music.  I had forgotten what a lovely theme Fawkes the Phoenix is, I really must play it more often.

 

Here is a photo I took at the end, with the mostly female choir top right behind the trumpets and trombones.

Just found out Prisoner of Azkaban and Empire Strikes Back are performing later this year in Australia! What a double-whammy of two brilliant scores!
