The Rewritten Memories features new orchestral arrangements of some of South Korean pianist/composer Yiruma's best-loved works including the globally popular "River Flows In You," described as "the ‘Clair de Lune' of the 21st century" by Classic FM, and single "Kiss The Rain." The Rewritten Memories features music from Yiruma's 20-year career, from 2001's First Love to his recent composition "Room With A View," a piece written before the pandemic, depicting the joy of staying indoors and quiet time alone, which provided an evocative soundtrack for 2020.

The Rewritten Memories is Yiruma's first orchestral studio album and features the composer on piano. "It was a challenging yet interesting experience," he recalled regarding recording 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 collaborating with so many musicians was a refreshing change for Yiruma who, like most composers, usually writes alone at the piano. "Composing for solo piano is tidy and simple," he explains. "The orchestral version needed to be more dramatic with more textures and colours." Creating new orchestral arrangements for The Rewritten Memories meant Yiruma could finally realize many of the sounds he had imagined when he first composed the solo piano works. "I had often thought when playing ‘River Flows In You' that a flute melody would work well over the top – it was wonderful to explore this."
