Biography Yiruma



Yiruma
started playing piano at the age of five, and moved to London when he was 10 to study at the Purcell School of Music, followed by King’s College, London. He released his first album Love Scene on Universal Music in 2001, aged 23. That same year, he released the follow-up First Love which included the No.1 hit ‘River Flows in You’, dubbed “the ‘Clair de lune’ of the 21st century” (Classic FM). In 2002, Yiruma’s arrangement of ‘When Love Falls’ was also included on the soundtrack to Winter Sonata – the drama which started the sensation now know as the Korean wave. In the years that followed, Yiruma’s repertoire grew and his career flourished, from sell-out live performances and international tours, to hosting his own radio shows. He has written more than 200 pieces to date, earning over two billion streams. His music is often featured in classical charts – in March 2020, Yiruma scored a No.1 album in the US Billboard Classical chart. Yiruma remains an inspiration for young pianists across the globe thanks to his uplifting, emotional and beautiful melodies.
