Have you ever heard melancholic music that either melts your heart and makes you say ‘awww’ or brings back sad memories and brings you to tears? Yiruma’s songs just makes these all possible for me. There are times that I just want to listen to calming music and his compositions are just perfect. I can feel very in love in one song and then sad into the next.
Yiruma is a well-known South Korean pianist. He started playing the piano at the age of five and moved to London at the age of eleven to pursue further studies in music. He has released 12 albums since 2001.
My favorite among his composition would have to be Kiss the Rain.
Listening to this on my vacation day is just calming. It takes away the stress of the city life – best paired with a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine.
