“Tenderness shot through with latent eroticism is the key to the success of Vázquez’s rendition of the Wagner/Tausig Tristan Paraphrase… is a perfect fit for Vázquez’s strengths of long-term thought... That it all works so perfectly is a testament not only to Vázquez’s intelligence as a musician, but also to the inherent strength and integrity of these pieces. The shaping of the “Transfiguration” final segment of the opera (Mild und Leise) is splendid, as is the sheer beauty not only of Vázquez’s tone but also of his articulation and voicing.”
