Summary Three novels are brought to life in this 7-disc collection, which pays tribute to Mann's most celebrated and famous works. Buddenbrooks: A sweeping tale of the rise and fall of a wealthy merchant family torn between loyalty and personal freedom. Doktor Faustus: Driven by a single-minded search for a totally new musical idiom, composer Adrian Leverkühn makes a pact with the devil with a very high price, the total renunciation of love and the gradual deterioration of the mind and body. The magic mountain: Hans Castorp, son of a distinguished Hamburg family, spends seven years in a Swiss sanatorium. Drawn to the hermetic society, he receives an erotic and philosophical initiation but abruptly leaves at the launch of the Great War to learn true life experience and responsibility.
