South Korean pianist and composer Yiruma is celebrating 20 years since his debut album with a new recording, The Rewritten Memories, out now via Universal Music Group Korea. It features brand-new orchestral arrangements of some of his best-loved works from the past two decades, including the globally popular ‘River Flows In You' – dubbed "the ‘Clair de lune' of the 21st century" (Classic FM) – and ‘Kiss The Rain'.

The Rewritten Memories is Yiruma's first orchestral studio album and features the composer himself on piano. "It was a challenging yet interesting experience," he says, describing the recording of the album with the Korean Symphony Orchestra during the Covid-19 pandemic. "The entire orchestra members couldn't gather simultaneously and had to record part by part." Yet the opportunity to collaborate with so many musicians was a refreshing change for Yiruma, who, like most composers, usually writes alone.
