Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi began creating the music for the show in 2011, with most of score back then being penned for a small string ensemble.

With the series’ HBO success, over the following six seasons the music budget grew, allowing Djawadi to create even more emphatic pieces for large orchestras.
