ABSTRACT

There are surprisingly few studies on Ahn Eak-tai, the composer of <Symphonic Fantasy Korea> and <The National Anthem>. This may be because of his biography, which was first published in 1966 and revised five times until 2006. In the book written by Kim Kyung-rae, Ahn Eak-tai was described as a prominent patriot, and an outstanding musician. It may be that the depiction which was formed through decades as if it was real, has not excited researchers curiosity as a special research topic. However, since the new data related to Ahn Eak-tai have been discovered, the evaluation and interpretation of him have been changed by a certain circle of researchers. This article is the third paper that examines his Hungarian life and the world of his music, focusing on recently discovered Hungarian materials. In the 1930s, his activities in Europe were known through Korean domestic newspapers. Compared with it, in this paper, based on the Hungarian materials, we reviewed the real facts of his musical activities in the period of his Liszt Academy days
