Buckbeak's Flight

I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series (again).  I'm midway through HP & the Goblet of Fire (book 4).  After I finish a book, I watch the film version.  The third film, HP & the Prisoner of Azkaban, continues to be my favorite of the first 6 (I don't think the final two films count in the favorites game, because book 7 is the finale, and the finale is nearly ALWAYS in a class by itself).

Anyway, here are two versions of "Buckbeak's Flight", composed by John Williams. The first is a piano arrangement performed by AMAZING pianist Mark Fowler. (Please visit him on YouTube and Facebook and show him some love!)  The second is from the OMPS, recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, in 2004.
