Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 8 in E flat major
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording comes from one of the earliest 'bootleg' classical recordings ever distributed to the public, and its entrance into the market was nearly instantaneous. Taped illegally at concert with conductor Leopold Stokowski and the New York Philharmonic, it remains the earliest surviving complete recorded performance of the Mahler Eighth.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Carnegie Hall, New York (04/09/1950).
