Berlin PO/Victor De Sabata April 1939
Boston Pops/Arthur Fiedler 28 June 1939
Belgian Radio SO/Fritz Lehmann 11 April 1944
Unspecifed orchestra (on a Hungarian label)/Laszlo Somogyi 1 November 1951
The first three are listed in WERM 1 which stated that "no record issued between 1925 and 1950 has been omitted intentionally", Somogyi is listed in Gray. So presumably De Sabata was the first.
The De Sabata and the Fiedler can be heard on You Tube
