Youri Egorov Archives Housed at IHLIA

by our Editors in General , 18 juni 2014

IHLIA, the international gay/lesbian library, archive, information and documentation center, will take over the archives of the master pianist Youri Egorov (1954-1988), who died of AIDS.

So far the archives were in the trust of the Young Pianist Foundation (YPF).

From age six to seventeen, Youri studied music at the Conservatory of Kazan and performed with leading orchestras in major recital series, and gave concerts in leading venues all over the world. Just before a concert in Italy in 1976, he requested political asylum and eventually came to The Netherlands.

Soon, he met the Amsterdam architect Jan Brouwer, who would become his life partner. In 1988, Egorov died at home in Amsterdam because of AIDS, only thirty-three years old.
