Yiruma - that's an open fire turned to music, that's the sound of dusky late autumn afternoons or snow-free winter evenings in candlelight. Yiruma is the soundtrack for the twilight hour.
It's not without reason that the fan community of the US film series “Twighlight” chose Yiruma's most famous creation “River Flows In You” as a piece of music to be played when the vampire Edward plays a melody on the piano to his beloved Bella; Melancholy paired with longing and passion sounds from Yiruma's compositions.
The South Korean Lee Ru-ma (이루마 - born February 15, 1978 in Seoul, South Korea) writes and produces under the stage name Yiruma since 1996 primarily piano music, which, due to its catchiness and easy-to-understand harmonies, has found itself in the “popular” or “neo-classic” can be classified. Yiruma says about himself that he doesn't see himself as a pianist, but rather as a simple piano player. It's probably exactly what made him so successful.
Yiruma's music is not only good to listen to (be it -as mentioned- with red wine, tea or hot cocoa by candlelight or the fireplace, or after a long day on the way home), but it makes it possible in printed sheet music also allows countless piano lovers to create moments of peace and tranquility on their own piano or keyboard. Yiruma's musical ideas are not difficult and therefore easy to learn and implement even for beginners.
In addition to his best-known piece “River Flows In You” you will also find notes of the touching titles “Kiss The Rain” or “Reminiscent” as well as numerous other individual titles by the sensitive South Korean.
Yiruma, who studied music and composition in England, also produces for other genres such as hip hop, lounge or rock music. He also writes songs for musicals, films and theatre.
However, Yiruma's Piano Music was published, which also exists in numerous arrangements for other instruments are available.

By the way: For the aforementioned piano scene in Twilight, the producers finally decided to use a specially composed piano piece. Really spurred on by this, the international YouTube community itself began undaunted to share scenes from Twilight with Yiruma's “River Flows In You” and upload it to the web. This gave the piano piece, which was composed in 2001, spontaneously high chart positions.
