|If you like Hatikvah, listen to Ma Tovu at matovumusic.com|
|Hatikvah (“The Hope”) is the official national anthem of Israel. The song’s beautiful haunting melody derives from a 16th-century Italian madrigal by Giuseppino Del Biado, and its passionate lyrics were adapted from a poem written by Naphtali Herz Imber in 1877.|
On the heels of Ma Tovu, composer Ron Leshnower returns with a new choral-orchestral interpretation of Hatikvah, performed and programmed with virtual instruments and voices from EastWest/Quantum Leap.
About the Composer
Ron Leshnower is a classical and jazz composer and a virtuoso pianist whom music critic Dan MacIntosh describes as a “talented, one-man-band artist.” His original works explore a range of genres, orchestrations, and emotions. Leshnower has been captivated by the possibilities of electronic music since the 1980s, and his patience and attention to detail has enabled him to program complex projects that emphasize human expression and achieve a sentimental realism.
|Leshnower’s career as a composer began in earnest when he had an orchestral work premiered at age 15 and, a year later, took first prize in a Long Island composition competition for an original chamber music piece.|
|Leshnower earned a bachelor’s degree in music and Italian from Yale and also studied piano, by audition, with a noted professor at the Yale School of Music. He has also conducted and accompanied a wide range of adult and youth ensembles and teaches private piano lessons.|
