A conductor friend of mine (who has done the work without cuts) who is Previn fan, mentioned that the first Previn recording features cuts. The two subsequent recordings are "complete" but do not feature the repeat in the first movement.

 I don't have Previn's second LSO version. The first movement of Ashkenazy/Concertgebouw is 17:58 - total time 56 min. The notes don't mention the subject of cuts at all. Previn's first recording with LSO (RCA) is tt 50 min. His Telarc version 1st mvmnt 20:23 - tt 63 min. Don't have the CD, so can't consult the notes.

My copy seems to have disappeared, but according to the internet, EMI Previn times out in the first movement at 19:10. The Wikipaedia Rachmaninoff 2nd webpage only indicates that it is complete. Some how I seem to remember that it was missing the repeat. The Wikipedia page seems to indicate that the first complete recordings with the first movement repeat occur later.

Hope the subject change for the this is appropriate. I don't have the Previn recording. Does he observe the repeat in the first movement? Several do have it with the repeat. I have the Rozhdestvensky which clocks out at 66:13.
