Harry Potter...Swan Lake?

Late last night, I had an idea that Harry Potter's theme music sounded a lot like the main theme in Swan Lake.

D and I are reading the books together. We're just starting Book 3. (I read 1-4 a long time ago, but law school got in the way, and that was four years ago, so we're starting over.)

I don't know all the surprises in store for us, but I do wonder about the Harry-Voldemort connection. Odette and Odile?

FilmScoreMonthly.com doesn't comment on my (silly) music analysis, but it does vindicate my rambling late-night thought that there is indeed a touch of Swan Lake in the HP.

Fun stuff!
