Deutsche Grammophon is proud to present a magical collaboration between two legendary artists: John Williams and Anne-Sophie Mutter. Available as of today is “Hedwig’s Theme” from Harry Potter for violin and orchestra, adapted and conducted by Williams himself and recorded with Mutter and the 70-strong Los Angeles Arts Orchestra at the iconic Sony Studios in Los Angeles. The single captures the magic of a work loved by countless Harry Potter fans and adds a dazzling level of virtuosity to one of Williams’ most characterful compositions. Williams and Mutter describe the new version of “Hedwig’s Theme” as “Harry Potter meets Paganini”. They see its musical wizardry and stunning solo violin writing as “a Carmen Fantasy for the 21st century”, evoking memories of Pablo de Sarasate’s famous violin showpiece on themes from Bizet’s opera Carmen.
