the Zuckerman and Pearlman accounts are quite well done
The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal

It's been a while that I listened to it but I found the Hefeitz/Koussevitzky in the Naxos transfer very listenable, as far as I recall it above average for a 1939 orchestral recording.
A rather lean and flowing modern recording is Zehetmair/Dohnanyi.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)
