Exploring an off-season Salzburg turned-up a few destinations worthy of sharing with all of Opera Chic's music<3'ing readers. Stumbling upon CD store, musikhaus katholnigg, on Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse 16 (pictured above), gave the impression of who exactly holds popularity with the Salzburg crowd.
Browsing the stacks revealed a giant selection of Magdalena Kožená, Ceci Bartoli, Thomas Hampson, Natalie Dessay, Bryn Terfel, and Rolando Villazón. However, golden-boy Juan Diego Flórez held just one single CD spot, and Fleming just had two. However, they did have a few copies of the NTA Hampson & Ramey CD, so this store frikkin rules.
