Leonid Kogan's Queen Elisabeth performance

On 9 May 1951 the Queen Elisabeth Competition for violin was held for the first time (under that name) in Brussels, Belgium. Formerly known as the Ysaÿe Competition, it ran until 26 May, with Leonid Kogan taking the first prize. Here's a performance of the Sarabande from Bach's Partita No.1, as performed by Kogan at that competition.
