Las Sombras del Sonido


The late Korean composer and conductor Ahn Eak-tai (1906-1965) played a prominent role in Mallorca’s cultural life. Ahn was the founder of the Palma de Mallorca Symphony Orchestra, in 1946. He was married to a Mallorcan lady, who is still alive. Ahn worked with Richard Strauss in Vienna, amongst others. He died in Palma de Mallorca.

Last year, a sculpture was placed in Palma de Mallorca’s Passeig Born at the occasion of Ahn Eak-tai’s centennial birthday. The sculpture is a creation of the Mallorcan artist, Joan Costa (Palma, 1961) and is called Las sombras del sonido (The Shadows of Sound). You may not see it in my photo, but the three steel panels are pleasingly based in a shallow water basin.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca. The date: August 1st, 2007. The time was 12:42:58.
