Yiruma–A River Flows in You.

Yiruma plays “A River Flows in You”.   I’d never heard of this pianist before, but I love this song.  –Beetle Blogger

From Wikipedia:

Yiruma (born February 15 1978, Seoul, Korea) is a South Korean piano music composer. He is married to Son Hye-im.

Yiruma is well-known throughout the world, and his albums are sold all over Asia, as well as the United States and Europe. His most famous pieces are “River Flows in You“, “Kiss the Rain” and “Love Me”. These pieces are widely mistaken as being associated with the movie Twilight. Although he formerly held dual citizenship as a citizen of the United Kingdom and South Korea, in July 2006 he gave up his British citizenship and entered the Republic of Korea Navy to begin his military service, which is compulsory for all male South Koreans.[1] He lived in Osaka, Japan, for 5 years to promote album sales before giving up his dual citizenship.

    One of my seminary students learned to play this and played it every morning last year while waiting for her ride to school. I love it! She gave me a link to get the piano music online, so I downloaded it too. I haven’t spent much time with it, but I love it!

    I’ve been listening to it all day. I’m a repetitive type of person. When I find something I like, I just keep it on. I was stuck on Jon Schmidt’s Love Story Meets Viva La Vida too for the longest time. I love piano. Have you heard George Winston’s Canon variation? Very cool. I’d love to play it. One stanza a week for a year. ;-)

    Karisa loves this song. I got the sheet music and have been going through lessons again so that I can learn to play it.

    I would love to play it, but I suspect that my fingers might turn wobbly at the end there. If I were braver, I would!
