Music fans are in for a big treat! World class pianist Yiruma (이루마) will be holding a one-night only concert at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 8th July 2017.
The South Korean composer previously held his first Malaysian show in October 2014. His 2nd concert, which took place in the following year, saw a 2,000-strong crowd.
Yiruma aka Lee Ru-ma began playing the piano at the age of 5. When he was 10 years old, he moved to London to study at the Purcell School of Music. After graduating in 1997, he continued his musical aspirations and completed a composition major from King’s College London.
During Yiruma’s time in college, he toured around Europe, making him the first Korean artiste to receive an invitation to perform at the 2002 MIDEM (Marché International du Disque et de l’Edition Musicale) in Cannes, France.
To date, the beloved pianist has released 13 studio albums including “First Love” (2001), which held critically-acclaimed hits such as “River Flows In You”, “Kiss The Rain”, and “May Be”.
“I am so glad that I have the opportunity to come back to play for Malaysian fans again – and I wish that I can play better than the last time. I hope to see everyone who loves piano and my music,” he said.
