“I just want to be remembered.”

When success and failure collide, can a young Rachmaninoff rediscover his musical genius?

A musical fantasia, "PRELUDES" unfolds in the hypnotized mind of composer and virtuoso pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff as he attempts to overcome his writer’s block following a disastrous premiere of his Symphony No. 1 in D minor

In an array of hypnotic reveries, he is invigorated by some of the most influential artists of the time including Tolstoy, Chekhov, and Tchaikovsky

Creativity is unlocked and ignited through Dave Malloy’s ("Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812") bewitching mashup of original compositions and Rachmaninoff’s own work that takes us on a glorious journey on an artist’s quest to secure a legacy and reclaim a voice.
