Internationally acclaimed contemporary pianist-composer Yiruma will return to Singapore on 29 February 2020 (Saturday), at The Star Theatre for a brand new concert.
After his successful sold-out concerts in Singapore, Yiruma will return to Singapore this coming leap year day of 29 February 2020! Expect to hear his signature classics LIVE such as “River Flows in You”, “Kiss the Rain”, “Love Me” and “May Be”. Yiruma is set to captivate audiences once again with his charming personality and engaging interaction at the concert.
Yiruma is not a traditional pianist by any means. Rather than being stuck in the traditional boundaries of a performer-composer, he continues to extend his musical reach by collaborating with a number of artists, including those from the K-Pop genre, notably Chungha, Henry from Super Junior, 2AM, Ailee, and Baek Ji Young; such as the recent impromptu collaboration onscreen where Yiruma and Chungha bring dance and piano together in a fresh rendition of her song “Gotta Go”.
Yiruma’s piece “When the Love Falls” was included on the original soundtrack album for “Winter Sonata”, the drama that started the sensation now known as the Korean wave. His music has been held synonymous with popular works of cinema, including many Korean dramas as well as the Hollywood hit “Twilight”, which did not include Yiruma’s piece on its original soundtrack but included scenes that many viewers associated with his piece “River Flows In You”.
To date, Yiruma has released numerous albums that encompass elements of both the contemporary and classical music genre. His videos on YouTube have reached over 400 million views, which is a strong indication of his worldwide popularity and appeal. Yiruma has said that he wants his music to heal, inspire, and remind the audience of love and hope. His simple yet melodic and emotional pieces resonate well with the modern listeners; millions around the world are moved by his music.
Over the years, Yiruma has performed successful tours around the world, from Singapore to China, Malaysia, Australia, Europe, and the United States. In homeland Korea, he holds the record as the classical artiste with the largest audience at a single concert, and the greatest number of concerts by a single artiste!
