I agree with both you and Tony. To me vibrato also is a musical tool,
to be used with discernment and judgment. Perhaps another topic that
could belong in with this debate would be the question of how to teach
utilization and production of vibrato to students who are at the point
at which they are ready to understand musical tools for interpretation.
There seems to be little discussion of how this particular topic is
dealt with in teaching atm.
