About this album

The Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets original motion picture soundtrack was released on 12 November 2002. The score was originally slated to be composed and conducted entirely by John Williams, but due to scheduling conflicts with the scoring of Steven Spielberg’s film Catch Me If You Can, composer William Ross was brought in to adapt Williams’ music and conduct the scoring sessions with the London Symphony Orchestra.

From what can be heard in the soundtrack, there are six new themes, representing “Fawkes the Phoenix”, “The Chamber of Secrets”, “Gilderoy Lockhart”, “Dobby the House Elf”, “The Spiders”, and “Moaning Myrtle”.

Upon its release, the soundtrack was available in one of five different collectible covers. Each cover featured a different character or characters packaged above the main cover featuring Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

The soundtrack was a Grammy Award nominee for the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media in 2003. It charted on the Billboard 200 at 81, and also charted at 5 on the Top Soundtracks Chart.[1] In Japan, the album was certified gold by the RIAJ for 100,000 copies shipped to stores.

Though it does not appear on the soundtrack album, the Quidditch scene features a passage of a cue from Zam the assassin and the chase through coruscant, a track from the soundtrack to Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, another score by Williams which was released earlier in the same year. It is not known why the cue was used, however it is likely that the cue was used due to time constraints.

    Fawkes The Pheonix, The Chamber of Secrets, The Flying Car, The Spiders, and Reunion of Friends are all top notch Williams. Probably more standout tracks on this score than in the first or third films.

    You can see markedly the resemblance between that OST and Williams' SW: AotC : ).

    Williams made some incredible music for the Harry Potter films.
