JURY CONCERT / A tribute to Youri Egorov
Tribute concert by members of the Jury

The piano recital A Tribute to Youri Egorov, performed by members of the jury, has become a true YPF tradition. The evening promises to be an unforgettable event for the piano enthusiast.

The Russian top pianist Youri Egorov, who fled to our country in 1976, died in 1988 at the age of 33 in Amsterdam from the effects of AIDS. Many people still remember him with admiration and sadness.  The Young Pianist Foundation supervises the heritage of Egorov and honors him with this unique tribute concert.
