I am Jonas from Germany, 19 years old and saw Barbra live in Cologne for the first time.
Judging from the bootlegs that emerged from the other concerts and from my personal experience in Cologne she was in fantastic form there (maybe it was her best concert during this year's micro tour in terms of vocal precision and perfection although the second night in London must have been amazing from what i hear (i wish there were more bootlegs from that, specially OACD)).
I agree with what Werner wrote in his detailed Review of the Cologne concert: The fantastic and unforgettable moments of this concert were those timeless classic songs like How deep is the ocean or My funny Valentine and the Musical Songs.
I am not that crazy about the few Pop Songs she sang, partially in snippets though i liked Woman in love. The classic Bergman jazz songs like the medley in the first section (That face/Nice and easy) are all of exceptional musical and lyrical quality.
I was also tremendously grateful that she sang The way he makes me feel from Yentl as i like this song even better than Papa can you hear me which is amazing nonetheless.
Maybe - if i should find time in the near future - i will attempt to write a very detailed review analyzing the different musical styles, showmanship, legend status and stage presence and all other factors creating the multifarious mixture of Jazz, Broadway, Vaudeville and Pop, nostalgia and modernity, superstardom and modesty that is Streisand.
I also worship classical music as well as a broad variety of Jazz singers and a few Pop singers and their music. In January i saw Shirley Bassey in Hamburg (front row, in Cologne i failed to afford that ) and i will see Caro Emerald later this year (what i like about her is that unlike mediocre cover singers like Buble she mostly creates new songs reminiscent of the great golden era of Jazz which is - at least to me - more of an achievement than a cover which could never improve on the likes of Sinatra and Streisand) but while i cherish some of her music and her attitude i do know that she is nowhere near singers who are institutions famed for technical and vocal perfection like Bassey or Barbra. They made the Oscars worth watching for me.
Please feel free to add me as a friend on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Jonas.3947) as i am always happy to talk to or meet people who have great taste in music (they are the luckiest people in the world) and as you joined this forum for a reason i assume that most of you have this kind of sophisticated taste
