Notes and Editorial Reviews

- Preludes (Original Cast Recording) is a deluxe package containing a full-color, 32-page booklet with lyrics and show photos
- Songwriter Dave Malloy’s latest entry, continuing to build off of the critically-acclaimed Off-Broadway hit Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812

“Inspiring. Incorporating wildly diverse sources – classical, folk, electro-pop – Dave Malloy makes beautiful music.” – The New York Times “An embarrassment of riches.” – The New Yorker

From the creators of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, PRELUDES is a musical fantasia set in the hypnotized mind of Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff. After the disastrous premiere of his first symphony, the young Rachmaninoff
Read more suffers from writer’s block. He begins daily sessions with a therapeutic hypnotist, in an effort to overcome depression and return to composing.

Preludes opened at Lincoln Center Theater on June 15, 2015 in New York City. Read less
