After early successes, Rachmaninoff's First Symphony bombs with the critics. The conductor is drunk, the orchestra unrehearsed, the audience hostile. The young composer plunges into a three-year creative crisis which he only overcomes with the help of a therapist using hypnosis. – Préludes is a musical fantasy trip through the head of the hypnotized Rachmaninoff. Dave Malloy thrilled audiences in New York with his daring mixture of arranged original works by Rachmaninoff and hypnotic techno loops.
