Born in Málaga in 1986, the young Spanish conductor Salvador Vázquez has established himself as one of the most vibrant and charismatic artists of the new generation of conductors in Spain, with a special enthusiasm for the opera. The specialized press said:
“The baton of Salvador Vázquez, full of agility, brilliance and romanticism (as this work requires) was able to command with great complicity an OFM full of expressiveness, color, timbre and perfect sound filling..."
“Salvador Vázquez confirms the achievements of his young career, which is calling for higher artistic commitments”.
"The orchestral work (...) was placed in the terms of an absolute reference version not only for the special inspiration of the musicians (...) but also for that unique moment that is to witness the artistic maturity of a musician as complete on the podium as is the master Salvador Vázquez."
