Patrick Doyle: Ten Best Movie Soundtracks
Following in the footsteps of John Williams – whose scores for the first two Harry Potter installments were both nominated for Oscars– would be a formidable task for any composer. But director Mike Newell had faith in Doyle, having collaborated with him before on Into the West and Donnie Brasco. The composer delivered a magical score with Irish and Bulgarian influences for the Quidditch World Cup scene, and spine tingling cues for 'He Who Must Not Be Named'. The 'Harry in Winter' track has become a Classic FM favourite.
