Abstract:Byeongso Ahn was a versatile musician who has been virtually forgotten today and lived during some of the most turbulent times of modern history. This project takes crucial initial steps to shed light on Ahn’s unrecognized accomplishments by examining several never-before-seen primary source materials, including his unpublished articles. By investigating the different sources available, this study shows that Ahn was an established musician during his lifetime, and offers a definitive timeline of his life and work. This study will help Ahn take his rightful place in music history as a groundbreaking Korean musician and allow for further studies in more depth.
