Filmed and recorded over two nights, the CD and DVD capture the superstar’s celebratory return to her hometown of Brooklyn, New York. The evening marked her first musical performance in her native Brooklyn since she departed at age 16 to pursue her acting career and became one of the most popular and famous musical performers of her time. Back To Brooklyn features nine never previously performed songs by the star in concert. In her own words, the evening is also about “the songs that I love, written by people who I love.” Through their words and music, she pays tribute to her friends Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Jule Styne and Leonard. Tribute is also paid her friend Marvin Hamlisch, who passed away as Barbra was preparing for the concert. Other highlights include the first ever duet between Barbra and her son Jason Gould, three songs with the extraordinary trumpeter, Chris Botti, and a collaborative performance with the young Italian singing quartet, Il Volo. The DVD provides biographical video and still photo images of Barbra’s childhood and early career, and the documentary "I Remember Barbra" featuring interviews and anecdotes with people who either knew or remembered Barbra as she was growing up in Brooklyn.
