A Superb Collection

In addition to 19 Overtures and Sinfonias by Handel, CD2 finishes with the same by Kraus (Olympie), Gassmann (L’amore artigiano), Boieldieu (Zoraime et Zulnar), Paer (Sargino), Gretry (Le Magnifique), Sacchini (La contadina in corte), Haydn (Orlando Paladino) and Salieri (La fiera di Venezia). Nothing add to the other reviews here, other than to say that , though not mentioned in the booklet, but gleaned from CHARM (google Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music), for most of this DoubleDecca recorded in 1967 and 1970, the audio engineer was Kenneth Wilkinson. Times are 74:28 & 75:17.
