In Singapore for the FIRST TIME for a ONE NIGHT ONLY concert, the internationally-renowned Pianist-Composer from South Korea will be performing at The Star Theatre @ The Star Performing Arts Centre on 5th April (Saturday) 2014 at 8pm.

Says Yiruma of his forthcoming concert in Singapore, “I am very grateful that I will be performing in Singapore for the first time. I have heard that many fans in Singapore are already enjoying my music. Hopefully, my live performance would make you feel much more lyrical and emotional”.

Yiruma is the stage name of Lee Ru-ma, an internationally-known pianist and composer from South Korea.

Yiruma frequently performs at sold-out concerts across Asia, Europe and North America. His alma mater, King’s College London, England helped him gain European popularity and recognition. Among his most popular pieces are “River Flows in You”, “Kiss the Rain” and “May Be”.

Inspired by his surroundings and memories, his music has been described by as “beautiful”, “serene”, “soothing”, “emotional” and “consoling”, notching up more than 300 million YouTube views.

This composition garnered huge media and online buzz as fans expressed that “River Flows in You” would have been a perfect piece for use as “Bella’s Lullaby” in the scene where the male lead Edward hummed to Bella in the series “Twilight”.

Yiruma began playing the piano at the age of five and moved to London when he was eleven, in 1988, to study at The Purcell School of Music. He was also the first Korean artist to receive an invitation to perform at the 2002 MIDEM in Cannes, France.

With eight critically-acclaimed albums in his 12-year esteemed music career, Yiruma’s music is popular among classical lovers, piano students, and has also touched many listeners who are not familiar with classical music.

Besides composing theme pieces for OST of popular Korean dramas such as Secret Garden and Spring Waltz, Yiruma has also collaborated with numerous top Korean names such as award winning diva Baek Ji-Young, Shinee, and 2AM.

His music is also well-loved by the Christian community; one of his renowned compositions being “Lord…Hold My Hand”.
