In the Moscow Conservatory (1953-1959), Yevgeny Krylatov studied at once in two faculties: an essay class with Professor M.I. Chulaki and a piano class by V.N. Natanson. Wonderful teachers worked in the conservatory, but for Evgeny Krylatov it was important to communicate with MI Chulaki. In addition to high professionalism, M. I. Chulaki had that understanding of life, which was so important for a novice composer who came from a province to a strange, huge city, living without a homeless shelter, without any material basis. The composer's course, on which Evgeny Krylatov studied, was very strong. He studied with such great musicians in the future as A. G. Schnittke, Alemdar Karamanov , Eduard Lazarev. Among the graduation works of Evgeny Krylatov are the piano concert, the Pamir Capriccio, the ballet Seven-Color Flower, which was staged at the Bolshoi Theater in 1965 and went on its stage for 5 years. During this period, the composer is actively working in the drama theater, his works begin to sound on the radio. He writes music for performances from the “golden fund” of theatrical repertoire: “Undersized” and “Woe from Wit” at the Maly Theater, “The Inspector” at the Riga Theater of Russian Drama, “Romeo and Juliet” at the Theater for Young People and others. Evgeny Pavlovich Krylatov lives and works in Moscow.
