Sikora's Classical Records

Lonely Planet review

Sikora's blows away the classical inventory of mainstream music stores with its giant selection of more than 25,000 CD/DVD titles, plus hundreds of LPs for all those traditionalists out there. Opera, organ, choral, chamber and early music are well represented, as are New Age and spoken word, and there's also a section devoted to celebrated and lesser-known Canadian musicians.

The staff is highly knowledgeable and can point you to a hot Mahler or Rachmaninov recording at the drop of a hat.
