Scorenotes has a brand new interview with composer Nicholas Hooper on this score for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Of interest are new comments on a discarded piece for choir set in Latin, writing the romantic themes for scenes such as the Harry/Ginny Kiss, writing for the Inferi in the Cave scene and much more. To listen click here (SPOILER caution).  The soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released on Tuesday, with a link to a digital download for the music as well as exclusive content.

Thanks Matt!

Choir piece would have been lovely, like the one innnn, PoA I believe?
I can’t wait for the soundtrack! I’m thinking of actually buying it this time…

I listened to some of the soundtrack a few days ago and I really liked it. One of the choir tracks is so haunting, and it’s nice to hear it in a HP movie. Somewhat different to that of the choir in PoA, but very good.

I enjoyed the interview very much. It was interesting to hear the different parts of the score and how they fit together. This is one I will have to have!
