Finding dealers that are knowledgeable and who really care about music is rare these days. I found a great shop in Mt. Kisco called Accent on Music. Recommended.  
Richard Strauss Recordings
A favorite: Richard Strauss - Lucia Popp • Klaus Tennstedt, London Philharmonic Orchestra* – Four Last Songs / Death And Transfiguration on EMI      
Great find: A really good streaming FM radio station.
I just tuned in. Sounds good, and the program listings look very interesting. Now I just have to get used to the time difference. Thanks.

Janowitz and Popp are my two favorites, but Barbara Bonney, with only piano accompaniment, is also delightful.  
What are your top three favorite classical compositions?
1. Beethoven Eroica 2. Bach Goldberg Variations 3. Verdi Lat Traviata
