I'm afraid not... ::) It is just a long and very diverse list of performances singers you don't like.
I share your admiration for Juliane Banse (in general), but she uses vibrato! ??? That doesn't make any sense….

BTW I think vibrato is perfectly normal in Romantic music. Perhaps not in Baroque, but in Romantic music I am definitely Old School...
Schumann without vibrato? That is like a car without wheels… in my humble, strictly personal opinion 8)

Q
Well, in amw's defence: he objected to continuous and/or wide vibrato, not the use of it in general. Kirkby and Figueras sing with vibrato as well, they just use it sparingly.

I agree with you otherwise. ;)

In this repertoire, I like Elly Ameling and Lucia Popp.

My tuppence worth.
