This film biography of composer Gustav Mahler examines both his art and his life, capturing his ambition for greatness, love of music and attraction to women as we follow his rise to fame as a conductor and eventual acceptance as one of the leading composers of the late 19th and early 20th century.

A drive for greatness, a passion for music, a desire for women--the incomparable Gustav Mahler was torn by these forces, in turn leading a tormented life and fashioning undeniably affecting music. This stylized vision of the illustrious composer/conductor's life and inner mysteries, realized by celebrated Austrian filmmaker Wolfgang Lesowsky, reveals an artist of great feeling and a man of great contradiction through a combination of biographical narration, location footage, reenactments and a generous sampling of the master's own stirring music. Delve behind the music, beneath the genius, into the mind and the life of a uncompromising artist.
