The third of 5 entries for John Williams in the Ultimate Hall of Fame. This entered the chart in 2002, the year after the release of the first film in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone — and it's remained in the Hall of Fame ever since.

There is only one word to describe John Williams' soundtrack to Harry Potter and that is MAGIC! His brilliant score perfectly captures the wonder and adventure of J. K. Rowling's books about the young wizard, transporting the listener straight into that amazing fantasy world.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).
