Desplat composed the captivating score, which was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra at the famed Abbey Road Studios.

“I’m thrilled to be involved with the magical world of Harry Potter,” the composer said. “It’s an extraordinary story of extraordinary people, which allows me to play with a world of extraordinary sounds.”

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” which opens Nov. 19, begins the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, the much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts. “Part 2” opens July 15, 2011.
