With his cycle of 'music dramas' Wagner created Western music's most ambitious work, but he remains controversial for the less pleasant aspects of his thinking, not least his anti-Semitism. In telling the story of the composer's life, Stephen Johnson sets out to show that 'what matters most about Wagner's work are the very aspects that make it greater than the man'.

Part of Naxos' Life and Music series, this illustrated biography is accompanied by two audio CDs of recordings, presenting a representative selection of full movements from Wagner's works.
