The composer has written many popular songs, including “River Flows in You.” He has won numerous awards for his music and is a regular on MTV’s The Voice. Read on to learn more about Yiruma. You’ll be glad you did!

Room With a View

In May 2018, South Korean pianist and composer Yiruma released her new EP, “Room With a View.” The title track and accompanying video were inspired by the artist’s daily walk to and from the music college, Berrylands Rd. In a new video for the album, Yiruma sings “Beyond the Window,” which captures the sensation of gazing out the window and sitting in the sunlight. “Room With a View” also captures the feeling of sitting alone in the sun, while Preludio Al Vento and Sunset Bird are inspired by the wind outside the window.

The song ‘From the Yellow Room’ was inspired by Yiruma’s London home and featured on “Room With a View.” The new arrangement was inspired by the street where Yiruma grew up. He studied composition at King’s College under Harrison Birtwistle. His music has received more than two billion streams, and he’s regularly features in classical charts. In March 2020, Yiruma’s music will debut at No. 1 on the US Billboard Classical chart.

River Flows in You

Often compared to Ludovico Einaudi, composer Larry Moore’s ‘River Flows in You’ is another popular solo piano track. The enigmatic title translates to ‘finding inner music’, ‘falling in love’ or ‘finding the bathroom’. While the piano part is optional, the piece has a pops-style appeal.

South Korean-born Yiruma is an international sensation with a growing fanbase. Born in Seoul in 1978, Yiruma studied classical piano and composition in England. In 2000, she released her first solo piano album, Love Scene, which contained the single ‘Til I Find You.’ Since then, she has toured the world performing her own compositions. Her music is simple, yet instantly recognisable. It’s easy to see how her music crosses the divide between classical and pop music.

Similarly, the lyrics of Yiruma’s ‘River Flows in You’ have been compared to the “Clair de Lune” of the 21st century. The song was first made famous when it resembled the theme of the Twilight movies, and later received a resurgence of popularity during the 2020 lockdown. Unlike “Bella’s Lullaby”, this track’s main theme is a repeating refrain.

His music

Yiruma’s unique style is an amalgamation of Western post-classical music and his Korean heritage. The piano pieces on Yiruma’s debut EP, Room With A View, combine sparsely textured melodies in the middle register with a meditative tone. The piece is a reflection of the composer’s surroundings and is reminiscent of a comfortable place to unwind.

The early piano pieces composed by Yiruma are full of romance, nostalgia, and love. His 2003 album, Kiss the Rain, is a gorgeous piece of music that is easily accessible to a wide range of pianists. Moreover, Yiruma told the audience in 2014 that anyone could play the piece. The melody is typically played an octave higher than the left hand accompaniment. The music is a soaring, lyrical love song, and Yiruma has a long list of collaborations under his belt.

Despite her extensive talent and skill, Yiruma’s songs are so beautiful and powerful that it’s hard not to cry at a Yiruma concert. She writes songs that express love stories without words, allowing the audience to feel the emotion through the rhythms. Despite the short length of her songs, each song allows audience members to connect to each other and remember the most memorable events in their lives.

One of the most popular songs by Yiruma is ‘River Dance’. The lyrics of this song, like many others by Yiruma, describe love’s stages as moving through different levels of its development. The song’s melody begins gently and slowly, then opens up to a flowing piece. It retains its gentle quality as it builds, while using arpeggio runs and higher octave melody.

Yiruma’s piano pieces are often categorized as New Age or Neoclassical, with its signature tranquility and calmness. This is partly why Yiruma’s music is so popular despite the lockdown imposed by COVID-19, but the music still possesses a universal appeal. If you are looking for a piano concert that is free from politics and fear, you should give Yiruma’s music a try.
