J.K. Rowling surprised fans by revealing the truth around the origin of Harry Potter



J.K. Rowling surprised fans by revealing the truth around the origin of Harry Potter

But now, Rowling has revealed that Edinburgh is actually not where the writing of the boy who lived it began.

“I rented a room in a flat above what later became a sports shop,” Rowling said on Twitter, with a picture of where she lived at the time of writing her first book. “The first brick of Hogwarts was placed in a flat in Clapham Junction.”

And fans – borrowing from books – basically Fright.

The fan asked Rowling to explain “the truth about Harry Potter’s ‘birthplace’.”

Rowling, who is known to drop bombs and unknown news about franchises on Twitter, explains that the original “pen to paper” born in Harry Potter itself, took place in his flat.

However, he said, the moment he had an idea for the series itself was when he got on the train.

“If you define the birthplace of Harry Potter as a moment when I have an initial idea, then that is the Manchester-London train,” Rowling tweeted.

“But I’m always entertained by the idea that Hogwarts is directly inspired by the beautiful places I see or visit, because it’s far from the truth.”

As for the high-flying game, the Quidditch bludger, Rowling the word it was born in 1991 after staying one night at the Bourneville Hotel in Manchester.

Rowling continues to dispel a number of other rumors about her inspiration for key icons from the world of Harry Potter.

For example, a fan tweeted a picture from the bookstore Livraria Lello, in Porto, Portugal, which is said to inspire the Hogwarts library. The only problem is, Rowling said she had never been there.

He not admitted which he wrote in a cafe in Rua Santa Catarina, Portugal.

“If it comforts people who are disappointed with the bookstore in Oporto, I sometimes write here,” he wrote. “Actually this is the most beautiful cafe I’ve ever written.”

Rowling also said that rumors around her inspiration for Hogwarts themselves also missed the mark.

“I sometimes hear Hogwarts is based on one of the schools in Edinburgh, but that is also 100% wrong,” Rowling said.

“Hogwarts was created long before I applauded one of them! I finished the Hallows at Balmoral, and I can’t lie, I would rate it a little higher than Bournville.”

Of all the “bullshit about Potter landmarks,” Rowling said her favorite was people going to the parking meter that was supposed to be used in Edinburgh when writing “Deathly Hallows.”

“I can’t drive,” he wrote.

Unfortunately, when it came to spoilers about the work ahead, Dumbledore voiced his best disappointment: “Ouch, earwax.”

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
