YIRUMA LIVE IN AUSTRALIA 2016
26 - 31 July 2016
Yiruma is a Korean contemporary classical musician who combines melodious Korean compositions with inspiration and emotion. He began playing piano at the age of five and moved to London at the age of 10, in 1988, to study at The Purcell School of Music. Yiruma attended London University of King’s College to further pursue his aspirations in both music and composition. During his time at King’s College, Yiruma studied under Harrison Birtwistle, a master of modern music, from whom he learned classical and modern music, as well as composition. Making a historical impact for his country, Yiruma was the first Korean artist to receive an invitation to perform at the 2002 MIDEM in Cannes, France. Early in his career, his albums were released in Europe and Asia; they are now available internationally through various online sources such as iTunes and Amazon.
