The "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" original motion picture soundtrack was released on 30 October 2001. The film's scores were composed and conducted by John Williams as were the scores for "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban". The Williams scores for "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" were adapted and conducted by William Ross. The film introduces many themes that are used in at least one sequel as well, although this one sequel is usually the first one. These themes include two themes for Voldemort, two themes for Hogwarts, a Diagon Alley theme, a Quidditch Theme, a Flying Theme, a friendship theme, and the main theme, the last of which has been used in all films so far. The soundtrack was certified Gold in Canada (50,000 units) by the CRIA on December 14, 2001. [http://www.cria.ca/gold/1201_g.php] The soundtrack was performed at Air Lyndhurst Studios and Abbey Road Studios in London.

'Hedwig's Theme' is a leitmotif composed by John Williams for the Harry Potter film series. Often labelled as the main theme of the film series, it was first featured in "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" in the track "Prologue." A concert arrangement of the same name is featured in the end credits. Hedwig's Theme has been interpolated throughout every "Harry Potter" film score to date, including those by Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper. It is also featured in the score to the "Order of the Phoenix" game composed by James Hannigan. Hedwig's Theme has achieved significant pop culture status, featuring in ring tones, trailer music and other forms of multimedia.
