We just received the sad news that our colleague and head of the music department of the Royal Library in Brussels, Mr. Yves Lenoir, unexpectedly passed away. He was also professor musicology at the Université Catholique de Louvain and the Facultés Universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix in Namur. Apart from his duties for library and university Mr. Lenoir was a wellknown and internationally respected Bartok scholar and president of the Archives Béla Bartok in Brussels. He was also responsable for RILM and RISM in Belgium and member of various musicological associations.
