Year Is Here: Ron Leshnower's Debut Album Takes Listeners on an Exhilarating Musical Journey Through the Calendar

Twelve tracks capture the essence of each month, exploring a range of exciting moods and emotions.

DIX HILLS, N.Y., June 25. 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Hillocrian Creative LLC is pleased to announce the release of Year, a full-length musical work that takes listeners on an "exhilarating musical journey through the calendar." Twelve tracks are named for each month, along with a single word to capture that month's essence. The ensuing music explores a range of exciting moods and emotions through both traditional and unusual orchestrations. Composed mainly in classical and jazz idioms, Year eagerly jumps the genre fence, often described as haunting, triumphant, melancholy, and determined. Year is 100% electronic, programmed and edited with precision, yet it plays with the sound and sentiment of a hundred human virtuosi.

"This is not mere dinner music; not something you put in the background," writes music critic Wildy Haskell. "Year is the sort of instrumental album you reflect on."

Music critic G.W. Hill adds, "It's clearly a work of art and a successful one in the grand traditions of Ellington and Holst."

Year is available on CD and MP3 at Visit for more information and to access track samples and videos.

About Ron Leshnower:

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. Ron has been captivated with 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. Ron'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. Ron 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. Based in the New York area, Ron teaches piano to children and adults of all ages, and he is eagerly working on his next album.
