Violinist. Ida ?. Rondo Capriccioso - Saint-Saens?
We used to have a 78rpm record of this by Ida (or Ina?) and surname like Kurtz?? Any ideas?
I think she was German
The 'B' side was Danse Macabre

I wonder whether you might be thinking of Ida Haendel? Though her surname doesn't suggest it readily, she's a British violinist (b1928) whose early career certainly coincided with the twilight era of '78rpm discs.
Here are a few examples of her work:
Sibelius Violin Concerto:
Sarasate 'Carmen' Fantasy:
And the Saint-Saens "Introduction & Rondo Capriccioso" in question:
All the best,
