- Notes to Toccata Classics recording of Sinigaglia's violin sonata for premiere location, date and violinist for concerto. (A Musical Times of London report June 1, 1902 page 410, finds Serrato also playing the concerto again sometime in 1902- perhaps in May - in Milan, so the violinist obviously did not merely drop the work after premiering. Indeed, according to Phillip Silver's notes to the sonata recording, this concerto helped introduce Sinigaglia to the wider world.)
The violin concerto was performed in Köln December 3 1907 (Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, 75. Jahrgäng, page 85) which would seem to be consistent with this last.
There seem to be two recordings on YouTube, one from an RAI broadcast (also available from RAI's website as a download) lasting about 26 minutes, and the above (Marzadori/Zuccarini) 2013 recording lasting about 40 minutes. Some of this may be tempi, but perhaps the RAI recording is also cut? - Schissel
