When asked about music in Russian cinema, any literate Russian moviegoer or professional one, certainly recalls Alexei Shelygin among the first two or three names. It happened that films won a fame and fortune for him, but it’s more due the spirit of the times than about a writer who always continues academic works, is engaged in a successful and multi-faceted theatrical creativity, being much more versatile and productive then current times need.

On the ruins of collapsed Soviet Union's domestic film industry, Alexei was one of those professionals who restored the prestige of the composer's skill, not only in cinema but also in the "low genre" of TV-series music. In the nineties Shelygin was involved into the establishment of new, democratic TV. He created soundtracks for the most brilliant TV shows on the first private TV channel – NTV.

Television was his gates to the cinema…
