It's interesting - and I've certainly read of the date 1951 for this recording too. But Music & Arts's notes are very helpful here. Adler became associated with the SPA company in the US in 1951. He returned to Vienna in 1952, with his wife - according to her he hadn't been in the city since 1931. He began studio recording in Vienna on 26 March 1952 - flute concertos - and then on 20 April performed for Austrian Radio Mahler's 3rd Symphony with the same forces as on the disc - a rehearsal, in effect, for the recording made a week later on 27 April. This is all via Mark W. Kluge's notes, by the way.
