Singapore, 27 August 2015 – Mode Entertainment proudly presents “Best of Yiruma Live in Singapore 2015”.
Fresh from his sold-out concerts across Asia and Europe, popular South Korean composerpianist Yiruma will perform at a one night only concert at The Star Theatre, The Star Performing Arts Centre, on 6 November 2015 (Friday), 8pm.
With numerous studio albums over his illustrious career, the “Best of Yiruma” theme for this concert promises to deliver all the greatest hits from Yiruma, and more.
After playing to a 5,000 strong crowd who gave him a well-deserved standing-ovation last year, Yiruma is back to enthral fans who have been anticipating his return, as well as disappointed fans who did not manage to get tickets to the previous sold-out concert.
Yiruma is set to delight audiences with his charming personality and engaging interaction. Last year, an excited fan was randomly selected from the audience for a rare chance to play and compose with him on stage.
Says Yiruma about his return to The Star Theatre: “It still surprises me till this day that my concert was sold-out the previous time I was in Singapore. I am so glad that I have the opportunity to come back to play for Singapore fans again – and I wish that I can play better than the last time. I hope to see everyone who loves piano music, and my music.”
With an extensive fan base that includes piano music lovers, piano students, classical enthusiasts and Korean music fans – Yiruma is arguably the most well-loved modern composer-pianist of our time. His music has touched listeners all over the world, and has been universally described as “consoling”, “soothing”, “serene” and “beautiful”.
Crossing genres of Classical, Pop, New Age, Soundtrack and Jazz, Yiruma’s music will take you through a touching journey of emotional memories.
Expect to hear his signature tunes ‘live’ – including his massively popular pieces “River Flows In You”, “Kiss The Rain”, “May Be” and “Love Me”, which collectively have amassed over half a billion views online.
Prepare to be enraptured by his memorable themes from classic Korean dramas such as “Winter Sonata”, “Secret Garden”, “Spring Waltz” and more.
Also, look forward to stirring new tracks from his highly anticipated yet-to-be-revealed upcoming album in this concert!
Says Yiruma about his new songs: “I’m working on a new album – a very exciting project. I’m working with a famous photographer in Korea, who is also my friend. He has been taking beautiful photographs of the forests of Jeju Island. Some of the ideas for my new songs will be inspired by these moments. And I will be playing a few of them for you during this concert. I hope you will like them”.
Yiruma has also been in the spotlight through high-profile collaborations with numerous top Korean names such as award-winning diva Baek Z Young, Henry Lau of Super Junior, SHINee, Ailee and Hyolyn of SISTAR.
In a particular episode of the well-received Korean Variety program “Roommate”, when Chanyeol of EXO and actor Seo Kang Joon were asked to show off their piano skills, both artistes coincidentally chose different tunes from Yiruma. Seo Kang Joon also shared that he had played this same piece in one of the scene from his drama “Cunning Single Lady”. Taemin, member of the popular boy band SHINee, also chose to play Yiruma’s famous piece “River Flows in You” during his solo performance in one of SHINee’s concert.
For one night only, the well-loved Korean composer-pianist is set to excite fans with his exquisite compositions and intricate piano skills.
Get ready for a captivating evening of beautiful, soothing, consoling music, and a unique interaction experience with Yiruma.
