Ruggiero Ricci, violin  ~ New Symphony Orchestra of London conducted by  Sir Malcolm Sargent 
Decca  LXT 2509  (reissued 1957 as: LXT 5373)  1957 LP/matrices: ARL278 -1DR / ARL279 -1DR   Rec: 26-27 January 1950 - Kingsway Hall  
Side One is really superb (the violin harmonics go to <30kHz in the Cadenza) - Side Two is marginally inferior (also in terms of performance) & transferred at a slightly lower level (a subdued pressing 'pimple' is near the start for a couple of revolutions)..
