The classic recording of this work is by Janos Starker, very difficult to find in it’s original Mercury Records LP pressing in good condition. When you do, it is very expensive.
There are two superb reissues currently available: a 4-LP set done by Speakers Corner; 33-1/3 RPM, pressed at Pallas in Germany. It retails for just under a hundred bucks. I chose this version over the 8-LP version now available from Analogue Productions for $175 (I believe), as the latter plays at 45 RPM. Slightly better sound (it is said), but I don’t like the LP side broken in half.
