Yes - just got back from holiday to find these among dozens more excellent YT uploads from James Stuart. Will need another holiday after downloading/cataloguing this lot !
Getting these first so I can listen while starting to 'acquire' the rest !

Domenico Scarlatti's opera Tetide in Sciro is playing at the moment. Despite their advanced compositional merits and frequently good libretti, Scarlatti's operas have struggled to obtain a toehold in opera houses... even his famous surname hasn't given him the leg-up which being a respected source of oratorio-society pot-boilers gave Handel.

Symphonies 5 and 6 are also there


Haven't actually found them very inspiring after all.
Whether that's the recording quality (NOT special), my own inadequacies (too many to count); or just maybe they aren't that
awesome in the first place.
Does anyone else rate them much more highly ?

Recently introduced, by a U.S. contact - not, unusually, from AMF ! -  to this excellent 'contemporary' radio station (sorry to all American friends who'll already know all about it - to this 'innocent' in England it's a marvel !).
Today's discovery - Christos Hatzis...'De Angelis'.

Not to worry, people ignore me consistently, maybe I am your culprit, if so, all is well and you are free as everybody else to do so.

This is a bit harsh. Being curious about composers active in Germany during WW2 doesn't make one a neo-Nazi, any more than having an interest in Soviet music makes one a communist. We are, after all, interested in the music, not the politics of the time.

How did this bit of drama end up in this particular thread?

I happen to like the basis for the thread....gives a good chance to be 'steered' towards something worth trying, or to stick up for favourites...of whatever provenance.
