Mirror of Erised Inspires Prize-Winning Classical Music Composition

The world premiere of Mirror, Mirror, a classical wind ensemble composition will be held at the University of Connecticut on Saturday, March 19. The piece, written by composer Stacy Garrop, winner of the Raymond and Beverly Sackler Music Composition Prize, was inspired by three stories about mirrors and mirror images:
"Mirror, Mirror involves two identical wind ensembles, each consisting of a flute, an oboe, a clarinet, a bassoon, a horn, a trumpet, a trombone, and one percussionist, to be set up in exact mirror images of each other. One represents reality or the mirror's subject, while the other represents the mirror's reflection, Garrop says. . . The first movement depicts the Greek legend of Narcissus, the middle movement explores J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the mirror of Erised, and the final movement illustrates the Grimm Brothers' rendition of Snow White."
For more information about the piece, the Sackler Prize, and the concert, click here.

House-Elves Hit the Quidditch World Cup in GoF DVD

It would seem that the new Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire DVD reveals not just the deleted scenes and bonuses, but allows for some closer inspection of things that we might have missed when seeing the film in movie theaters; things such as two House-Elves riding on camels at the Quidditch World Cup. Yes, you are reading this right, and no, this editor hasn't lost her mind... yet :) Dressed in both Ireland and Bulgarian team colors errm pillowcases, you can clearly see these two Elves in a scene very early after Harry and Co. arrive at the Quidditch World Cup camp and they show Hermione with Ginny laughing and pointing. While many of us lamented the lack of Winky, Dobby and the entire S.P.E. W storyline in this film, we are not sure why this was included, but you can definitely see the Elves at the QWC hereand here. Thanks to Alex and Jose for the heads up!

Leaky Presents: First Fan DVD Commentary

We're happy to bring you the first-ever Harry Potter fan DVD audio commentary track. Now that you (in the US anyway, we know) have your DVDs, we hope this track will provide you with some entertianment and even information (in the form of tidbits from TLC's set visits) on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It is available on the PotterCast feed and also as a direct download.

Now, how does this all work? This is basically an audio file that you play while the Goblet of Fire plays on your TV/computer/etc. Lower the volume on your DVD, and follow these instructions to play the audio at the same time.


HOW TO SYNC YOUR DVD AND THIS COMMENTARY:
Follow these instructions to set up this podcast to play alongside your "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" DVD (which you will need to own):
1. Set up your DVD in your TV/computer/console/other player, and start to play the full-length feature film.
2. When the screen goes from BLUE to BLACK, hit PAUSE.
3. Start this audio track.
4. John will count down ("Three...two...one...click"): UNPAUSE your DVD when he says "click."
5. Enjoy!

PAUSING:
As these are separate video/audio tracks playing simultaneously, pausing will pose a problem. If you pause the video first, and the audio second, unpausing the audio first and video second will probably link you up pretty closely to the earlier synchronization.


Again, you can get this via the PotterCast feed or here, and discussion of the PotterCast is right here.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! We will be doing these for all the films, and repeat ones with guests, in the future.

JKR worth $1 billion

 

Forbes has published their annual list of the richest people in the world, and they have ranked JK Rowling at #746 with an estimated net worth of $1 billion!

Author had a banner year last year. Last July, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth book in her widely successful Potter series, was a huge hit. Rowling sold 60 million books worldwide last year, bringing the tally to 310 million copies of Harry Potter books sold. In November, Warner Bros. released Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth Potter film and reversed a creeping Harry box-office slide. The movie pulled in $287 million in the U.S., the highest grossing film in the series after the debut film. A source in the Rowling camp says that last book in the series will be out in 2007.
