Editorial Reviews

Idina Menzel has a diverse career on the stage, in films and television, and in music. The beloved Broadway star, best known for her work in the Broadway musical and film adaption of Rent, her Tony Award-winning performance as Elphaba, the green-faced Wicked Witch of the West in Wicked, and her recurring role in the hit TV series Glee, has spent much of the past two years crisscrossing the country, headlining with dozens of symphony orchestras. This past November, on the second-to-last stop on Menzel s 2011 itinerary, the star recorded her forthcoming PBS special Idina Live: Barefoot at the Symphony. On March 6th, Concord Music Group will release the accompanying DVD to that special.

The special was captured in Toronto at Koerner Hall, a beautifully modernist, acoustically blessed, 1,100-seat space literally carved out of the city s historic Royal Conservatory of Music headquarters. Menzel performs with the 52-piece Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, one of Canada s premiere symphony orchestras, under the direction of guest conductor Marvin Hamlisch (or as Menzel prefers to call him, the legendary Marvin Hamlisch) and her equally accomplished music director and pianist, Rob Mounsey (who has worked with everyone from Paul Simon and Steely Dan to Madonna, Usher and Rihanna).

With the PBS special complete, Menzel plans to go back on tour this summer. She also hopes to return soon to Broadway for "a brand new, original show that I am not allowed to talk about, but really excites me." In addition, Idina s exemplary work continues with A BroaderWay, the foundation she established with husband Taye Diggs in 2010 to help inner-city girls find outlets for self-expression through arts-related programs.

When I saw her as Elphaba I believed I was seeing one of the greatest performances I've ever seen on Broadway. I really like this performance. Her "reality" as a performer shows through. I am so happy that I now have a recording of this great event that I wish I had been at. I look forward to seeing her again.

I was at the concert and have been waiting for the release of this DVD to relive that wonderful evening. Idina was funny, charming and very entertaining. Her singing was great and the song selection was perfect. What a nice surprise it was when her husband showed up to sing with her. This will be a DVD to watch over and over again.

Format: DVD
No one is "impartial," but the late pianist Bill Evans once made the striking observation that musicians are the worst critics of their own music because their efforts are so much consumed by the "mechanics" of making music that they must strive to achieve the "naivete" that is the average, or lay person's, by right: Universal Mind [DVD] Universal Mind [VHS]. While experiencing Idina Menzel on record for the first time (several weeks ago--and largely as the result of an interest in Broadway musicals resparked by the new "Porgy and Bess")--I'm afraid I was at once overly critical from a musician's viewpoint and insufficiently so from the viewpoint of her numerous, vocal fans in whose midst I found myself just the other night.

I had come with little preparation to her concert this week in Milwaukee--some press clippings about Ms. Menzel being the "new millennium's Barbra Streisand," a quick listen to this recording, some cursory research into "Rent" and "Wicked." Some observations and impressions:

1. Menzel has a vocal quality that might be characterized as "narrow" (it's more biting and incisive than lush and mellow) and "youthful" (it's easy to understand why numerous young people can readily identify with her voice and inspirational songs--about converting obstacles into surmountable challenges. She represents a universal dream, one which many others are able to live out right alongside her. She's capable of exceptional projection (the quality that made Ethel Merman the first-choice of the early great Broadway composers, from George Gershwin to Cole Porter").

I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't know Idina Menzel until her appearance on the TV show "Glee". This DVD is my first exposure to her as an artist. In a world of auto-tune and lip-syncing, I didn't even know music like this existed anymore. This DVD is simply magical. I really encourage you to get this if you are a fan of Glee. You will soon be a fan of Idina Menzel!

The concert was the best I had ever experienced and I anxiously awaited the DVD upon pre-ordering. I was not disappointed. I love every minute of it. Idina is a true, genuine artist.

Idina shows off her stunning musical and vocal range, her vast knowledge of the American songbook, and her comedic sensibilities in this very entertaining concert album recorded with a full orchestra. Several of her most well known performances are included here with selections from "Rent" and "Wicked," but her inclusion of a song like the beautifully written "Asleep On The Wind," gives the listener insight into the type of song that Idina really loves to sing. I am sure I will enjoy listening to this collection of songs brilliantly performed by Idina Menzel for years to come.

I wasn't at this show but I saw Idina on the same tour in London, UK at the Royal Albert Hall and was lucky enough to meet her before the show. She was nothing short of phenomonal. She probably exceeded it. She will never put a foot wrong in my opinion. Her voice is out of the world, her stories are hilarious, just a true pleasure to watch perform. I'll definitely be booking tickets for her summer tour and I cannot wait to watch this DVD and re-live the magic of my evening through her performance in Canada. A must buy for Idina fans and anyone who knows what true talent is.

I want to purchase this, but as I own a nice high-def theater system ... no longer purchase standard-def DVDs. Any chance of a future Blu-ray release, Amazon?
