ABSTRACT

This study concerns the materials related from December 1940, when Ahn Eak-tai left the Ötvösch boarding school, to October 10, 1941, when there was a concert in Bigedo, Budapest. Contrary to what has been known thus far, this study claims that Ahn Eak-tai’s first encounter with Koichi Ehara was when he visited Romania in November 1940 for a performance, based on the performance program recorded at the time. Therefore, Ehara said in her writing that Ahn Eak-tai stayed in Europe and sought him to continue his studies, which was in December 1940, when Ahn Eak-tai had no choice but to leave the Báró Eötvös József-Collegium. The reason this point is important is because the point at which Ahn Eak-tai stayed in Ehara’s mansion and the point where his career as a conductor rose splendidly overlap. On October 10, 1941, he first stood on the conducting stage, which was different from the previous conducting stage and was more formal in form and content. Starting with this concert, Ahn Eaktai’s musical career reached its peak for about two years, focusing on activities in Germany. In this research, we took a closer look at this October 10th concert through data from Hungarian sources. And the harsh criticism that was published in some newspapers and music journals at the time was ultimately attributed to his inability to conduct in Hungary.
