He first glory received unexpectedly - famous performer Maya Kristalinskaya sang Martynov's song, composed to Yesenin's poems. After that, she spoke about the talented composer to the public and gave him a strong recommendation to go to work in State Concert. A year later, Martynov still heeded the advice Kristalinskaya, and then his affairs improved significantly.

After 10 years tireless work and performances Evgeny Martynov entered Union of Composers of the USSR. His songs became hits, and he himself was one of the most recognizable singers in the country. The best songwriters worked with Martynov: Robert Rozhdestvensky, Ilya Reznik and others.

A few days before his death, Martynov performed at a concert "Song of the Year 1990"where his last performance took place. There he sang a song called "Marina Grove".

September 3, 1990 the life of the Soviet performer was cut short, but what caused this, it is impossible to say for sure. His death has overgrown lots of rumors and controversy. There are several main versions of the circumstances under which the famous singer died - the last romantic of the USSR.

The official version readsthat Martynov died at the entrance of your own house from acute heart failure. According to eyewitnesses, the singer felt unwell while taking the elevator to the floor where he lived. He was found dead in the hallway. The neighbors at first thought that Eugene just fell asleep under the influence of alcohol, so did not immediately call an ambulance. The doctors have arrived after 40 minutes after the death of the singer. Some fans claim that his death could have been preventedif medical care was provided on time, however, doctors with this disagreed.

According to the second version, which was presented by his relatives, he died a violent death.

Moreover, according to the singer's relatives, during his lifetime he did not complain about any problems with his heart, but, on the contrary, was absolutely healthy.
