I have a CD of Sanderling conducting the LPO in Rachmaninoff's First said to
have been recorded live in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on 18
December 1957. I received it from someone who has connections with the music
scene in Russia. Of course, I have no idea if it is genuine, and my supplier
told me it was never released publicly, but it seems to be at least a
partial answer to your question.
