Alexander Hilsberg, solo violin - The Philadelphia Orchestra  conducted by  Leopold Stokowski     
HMV  DB.7875-80  Auto  (DB.2522-7)  Album no.232.    RCA matrices: 2A.84513-24    Recorded: 8 October / 12 November 1934 - Studio 2 Camden Church, Philadelphia.
Transferred solely for my interest: early 1941 set. Recording is 2.5dB below average RCA levels so used 2 lots of Izotope de-click as the surfaces (maybe the matrices) were a bit 'hashy' in places: end of side 7 in particular, though it does 'soften' the clarity. 32 bit-float derived. 
Walter Legge's notes included.
