Leopold Stokowski on Mahler’s Symphony No.8

Stokowski recalls the both the world premiere and American premiere of the work; from an interview recorded in the late 1960s. (Podcast is after the break.)

The announcer credits Ward Marston, but the recording was actually made by Jerry Bruck, with the indefatigable Mahler enthusiast Jerry Fox conducting the interview – hat tip to Bruck and Sybille Werner for the information.
