Stokowski gave the U.S. premiere of the work and was a renowned exponent of Mahler's music. On its initial release, Kevin Conklin wrote of this recording in Stereophile: "this is the most consistently satisfactory performance of the Mahler Eighth I know, and a powerful argument for preferring a live recording of the work. It deserves to be known as widely as the famous Bruno Walter/Kathleen Ferrier Das Lied von der Erde of about the same vintage."
