Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
"You're a wizard, Harry". It is the orphan's eleventh birthday, when the hunky Hagrid utters the sentence that will turn Harry Potter's life upside down.
For the delicate boy with the round nickel glasses and the lightning-shaped scar on his forehead is not just any wizard: Harry Potter alone is said to possess the ability to break the power of the dark wizard Voldemort. J.K. Rowling's successful novels not only captivated an entire generation worldwide, but also made millions of hearts beat faster as an eight-part Hollywood blockbuster.
The cinema film with live orchestra
While the audience follows on a big screen how Harry masters his first adventurous school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, how he runs through eerie corridors and over moving staircases or competes in Quidditch tournaments on a magic broom, the live sounds of the Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg provide strong emotions: To accompany the original film, the full score of John Williams' legendary film score is brought to life in all its drama.
Also heard here for the first time is the striking "Hedwig's Theme," that mysterious somber motif that became the signature main melody in the follow-up films and reliably evokes goosebumps.
