Today, the soundtrack of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released. The soundtrack includes not only the wonderful score by John Williams, but also a Harry Potter "Lumos" screensaver, wall paper, a photo gallery that you can view on your computer, and a mini-poster of the Dementors.
Liner Notes from Alfonso Cuaron read:
"John composed "Double Trouble" during the production of the film as we decided that a children's choir would be a warm welcome back to Hogwarts. The theme, a melodic mischievous close cousin of the "Hedwig's Theme" composed around text from Shakespeare's Macbeth, became the foundation stone for the rest of the film score. Its medieval color became the musical identity of the wizarding world in this third installment of Harry Potter.
John juggled these medieval motifs with a late 19th century rossini-esque narrative, a delirious big band Jazz number, and 20th century music (which we both share a love for). How he managed to create a unity out of it all, beats me!
It was a great privilege to witness, as the scoring sessions unfolded, music breathing life into what has become a much better film.
Gracias Maestro! - Alfonso Cuaron " has posted several reviews,and the lyrics to "Double Trouble".
