Composer Ron Leshnower Releases New Choral-Orchestral Interpretation of 'Hatikvah', Israel's National Anthem

The work offers listeners a fresh experience with a centuries-old melody while showcasing new virtual instrument and voice technology.

DIX HILLS, N.Y., Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- On the heels of "Ma Tovu", composer Ron Leshnower returns with a new choral-orchestral interpretation of "Hatikvah" ("The Hope"), 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.

Ron Leshnower performed and programmed his interpretation of "Hatikvah" using virtual instruments and voices from EastWest/Quantum Leap.
