Product Description

The legendary star of Broadway's "Music Man," "She Loves Me" and Candide" sings the songs of Stephen Sondheim and songs he wished he had written. Recorded live in true Dolby 5.1 multi-track surround sound, this 86 minute program captures the unmatched performance of one of America's most gifted artists.

Accompanied by longtime musical directory Wally Harper, Barbara Cook performs a memorable evening of songs by the great Stephen Sondheim mixed with songs Sondheim has said he wished he had written. It's a unique musical celebration The New York Times calls "brilliant...transcendent...you may find yourself holding your breath in awe!" As The Times of London recently declared: "Barbara Cook is the greatest theatrical singer in concert at the moment." Barbara Cook continues to perform MOSTLY SONDHEIM to critical acclaim and sold-out houses.

Barbara Cook's magnificent Mostly Sondheim concert is more than a tribute to the greatest Broadway composer of the late 20th century. It's also a tribute to the performer herself, the premier leading lady of her generation and a consummate cabaret artist. Accompanied by longtime musical director Wally Harper, Cook winds through such Sondheim selections as "Everybody Says Don't" and "Send in the Clowns." But the 86-minute program was suggested by a 1999 New York Times article by Sondheim entitled "Songs I Wish I Had Written," so it also includes non-Sondheim songs such as "I Got Lost in His Arms" and "The Trolley Song" plus peak moments from Cook's career (She Loves Me's "Ice Cream" and Follies in Concert's "Losing My Mind"). By the time she closes with a stunning a cappella "Anyone Can Whistle," the transfixed audience is sorry that it's over, but grateful they were there. --David Horiuchi

What a treat to see Barbara Cook on DVD. I was very lucky to have a front row seat to "Mostly Sondheim" when it played Benaroya Hall in Seattle last October. Hearing and seeing Ms Cook in person was a very wonderful experience.
It isn't quite like seeing her live in concert but this wonderfully packaged DVD is the very next best thing. Filmed at SUNY in Purchase, NY last October and November it is beautifully photographed and presents the entire show. Having been a big fan of hers for many years it is wonderful to watch her artistry over and over.
As a bonus, there are scenes from a Master Class she gave at the Kennedy Center last August. She is so endearing and warm to the students that she can correct them and they love her for it. A young man named Tim Tourpin gave an amazing rendition of "Sailing" that had Barbara Cook visibly stunned.
Don't hesitate a moment longer to get this brilliant piece of theatre.

It's hard to put into words how wonderful this DVD is. Ms. Cook is absolutely peerless in expressing the heart and soul of a song. She can sing anything brilliantly, but when the song is Sondheim's it's as if she's writing it as she goes, her beautiful voice and expressive face telling the story with so much emotion it can only be her own.
This DVD has laughs, too. She's not only a fabulous singer but a very warm, charming and funny woman.
This DVD is for anyone who loves Sondheim, Broadway, the American Popular Song and truly great talent.

I've been a longtime Barbara Cook fan...having purchased the CD of this concert with featured star Malcolm Getz. I've found hours of pleasure with the CD. So I was quite taken aback to find the DVD to be SO extraordinary. It adds all kinds of wonderful between numbers patter...and shows this artist in finest form. And many new songs (who knew she was a fan of Reba McIntire)! I just cannot take my eyes off the screen.
She truly CAN drive a person crazy.
Rush...don't hesitate...buy this.

This DVD is perfect!!Anyone who loves great singing, acting and storytelling will adore it. Ms. Cook is one-of -a-kind. I saw her in She Loves Me and Something More! as a teen and she sounds just as great now as she did then. She just has an amazing voice!
This DVD would be perfect as a birthday or Christmas gift. The recipient will truly thank you! Barbara Cook is truly amazing!What a wonderful woman and artist!

This beautiful DVD appears to contain all the songs I heard Barbara Cook sing in concert several years ago as she paid tribute to Stephen Sondheim by singing his music as well as songs he wished he had written. In both the accompanying Master Class footage and interview included with the DVD, Ms. Cook says that she as an audience wants to be "let in" by the performer. She certainly lets in her audience here with her warmth and honesty. Although she jokes about being a bit more careful now with her B naturals, she owes no apology to anyone for the quality and beauty of her voice although she was well into her seventies when she made this DVD. Her long-time accompanist and music director Wally Harper, who sadly died not long after the release of this DVD, is just as perfect in his own way as well.

So much wonderful music is included here. Does anyone do "Send in the Clowns" better? "Losing My Mind" always moves me as her standard "Anyone Can Whistle." And she now sings "The Trolley Song," as she tells her audience, for this first time with this collection of songs since it for a long time belonged to another singer.

Such a fine performance from an American legend who will release a new CD in early November, an event to make all of her fans happy.

Barbara Cook is a phenomenon. This DVD is so wonderful it is simply hard to describe. Of course, her performance is first rate but what really makes this disc a cut above is the master class available in the bonus features. How fascinating to get into the mind of a show business genius! And just by the shots of the crowd, it is obvious that all are totally mesmorized by the experience. She takes the kids from being talented to being stars right before your very eyes. I cannot recommend this any higher. Go Barbara!

Barbara Cook is one of the most talented artists in the music world. Her longevity proves what a fantastic voice she has. How many people make it to Broadway, are know internationally, perform in Madison Square Garden and can teach at Julliard? More importantly, how many are able to sing beautifully until they are eighty years old? Certainly not Frank Sinatra and dozens like him. Time and genes have been kind to Ms. Cook. Other artists in her field greatly admire her.
