Both the Lovegoods and Dobby will get musical themes in Alexandre Desplat's score for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, according to an update by Conrad Pope, the score's orchestrator. Recording with the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) began a week ago.
27 August: Working on Alexandre Desplat's new score for the next "Potter". Exciting, vigorous music! Harry flies, fights and conjures. All accompanied by the distinctive, definitely non-generic voice of Desplat. Those who love melodies, harmonies and emotions in their film scores should be pleased. Reminds one of the old days. Stay tuned.
24 September: Just finished the first week with the LSO of recording Alexandre Desplat's score to "HP7". Harry Potter now occupies a new musical universe. For Lovegood AD has written a charming, "groovin'" theme. Dobby, too, is given a new "voice". The emotional music reaches its climax in Ron’s speech in the "wilderness" where the poetry of AD conveys the emotion in a single chord's voicing. Stay tuned.
Deathly Hallows: Part I will be released on November 19; Alexandre Desplat's soundtrack will be released on November 16.
With thanks to UHP.

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Leavesden Studios where cast and crew were busy at work on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. During the visit, I toured the sets (both old and new), and interviewed many members of the cast and crew. You can read a preview of my report below.
We climb up some steps to arrive in a new set: the toilet block which Harry and Ron use to enter the Ministry of Magic. The attention to detail here is paramount. Visually, the room is old and dilapidated and everything about this set – stalls and all – looks oddly authentic. That is until you reach the end of the set, where a large painting of a London street hangs over the construction.
The now familiar Ministry of Magic set has been extended for the film too. On Leavesden's 'C'-stage, a new trial room has been erected. It's noticeably "cosier" than those featured in earlier films. It's here that Dolores Umbridge will interrogate Mary Cattermole. Back in the Atrium, crew members are reassembling the iconic set after its dramatic destruction in Order of the Phoenix. It takes roughly a month to reassemble. Behind the Atrium, Ministry lifts are also being constructed. Filming is set to begin here shortly.
The full piece for Deathly Hallows: Part I will be available next month.
