Sourcebooks MediaFusion and Naxos proudly present this fascinating biography of composer Gustav Mahler.

Among other astonishing compositions, Mahler completed nine symphonies of tremendous emotional range and imaginative power. Stephen Johnson follows Mahler's development as man and composer, and sets out the experiences-the personal joys and sorrows, as well as the broader cultural forces-that formed him and made him one of the most widely loved composers in classical music.

This splendid volume comes complete with two CDs of carefully selected Mahler pieces. Readers also gain access to an exclusive website where they can hear the works in their entirety and explore additional content.

A revolutionary biography utilizing traditional and new media, Mahler: His Life and Music provides a uniquely rounded portrait of this visionary composer and his earthshaking music.

He is the author of Bruckner Remembered, a contributor to The Cambridge Companion to Conducting, and a regular presenter for Radio 3's Discovering Music. In 2003 Stephen was voted Classical Music Writer of the Year.
