#TuesdayTune ~ Harry Potter!

Hello dear friends and welcome to this week's Tuesday Tune!

I have had a great weekend and a lovely day today. We spent the day in the CBD Mall to do some Christmas shopping and to see latest Harry Potter film. It was truly gripping and the ending was a real cliffhanger. We can't wait to see part 2!

One of the many things that I love about all of the Harry Potter movies is the music. The soundtrack is always amazing. I especially loved the muisc from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the film based on the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling. It is the fifth instalment in the Harry Potter film series and it is known for being significantly darker than the other four films.

Nicholas Hooper was the composer for the soundtrack of the film, following on from John Williams, who scored the first three films, and Patrick Doyle, who did the fourth. For the new score, Hooper and the London Chamber Orchestra recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. Like I mentioned previously, the score, like the film and book, is darker than previous instalments in the series. To emphasise this, a Japanese Taiko drum was used for a deeper sound in the percussion. The soundtrack was released on 10 July 2007, the eve of the film's release. For his work on the film, Hooper was nominated for a World Soundtrack Discovery Award.

There are two pieces that I really enjoy listening to from this soundtrack. The first one is called Flight of the Order of the Phoenix and the second is called Fireworks. Please let me what you think of these two great pieces. I sure do hope that you enjoy them as much as I do! 

I hope you enjoyed this week's #TuesdayTune!

Best wishes for a fabulous week,
