For a satisfying feast of prismatic colo rs and intricate designs, you can stop by one of our local museums any time. But this weekend, check out the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's program instead. So, OK, this is about aural hues and structures, rather than visual, but the effect is just as arresting. And, for those who still crave something to see, this concert offers that, too, in the form of projected images from the Hubble Telescope. They accompany a perennially popular sonic blockbuster from the orchestral repertoire, Gustav Holst's “The Planets.” But the fun starts long before that portion of the program.

MY NEW COMPUTER has eaten the Bach. Nerds have been telling me for years something bad would happen, but I hadn't expected the eating of Bach. I'd expected the bad something to be like an old Moscow show trial. I would have to tell the world I was obsolete, out of touch with the new slang, the new clothes, the new totality of the total newness, kaput. And why? Because I had sneered at the cyberfuture instead of accepting it with joy.It was an egoist's fantasy. In Moscow trials, people who had committed the crime of being annoyances to Stalin always had to tell the world about it before being shot.

This season's Naval Academy Distinguished Artists Series got off to a distinguished start Friday with a masterful recital by Vladimir Feltsman, the Soviet pianist whose emigration to the United States was a cause celebre in the 1980s.Mr. Feltsman's career in the West began bumpily amid Cold War hype, intense critical scrutiny and the artist's frenetic concert schedule, but it has weathered the storm and he remains very much in demand as one of the world's top-ranked pianists.That certainly was the message of his performance at Alumni Hall.

The more you study Bach, the deeper your admiration becomes. At first, it's the sheer structural ingenuity of the music that startles and engrosses -- all those repeated A/B patterns; the inevitable, incredibly eventful harmonic journeys from tonic to dominant and back again; the complexity and perfection of the contrapuntal dialog. From drinking in Bach's brilliant manipulation of form, it's a small step to being almost overwhelmed by the sense of something downright spiritual permeating the masses of notes, something grand and ennobling.    One of the coolest things about Bach is how all that technical and expressive beauty is as apparent in a work for solo violin as in a large-scale piece for chorus and orchestra.

The arts world tends to think in terms of September-to-June seasons, rather than calendar years, but it's still fun to look back on the past 12 months and relive the performances that offered extra satisfaction. Although I may have missed some great stuff along the way - it's pretty near impossible to catch everything packed into a given year - I experienced plenty of rewarding activity on the classical music and theater scenes. Here are my picks for the best performing-arts events in Baltimore during 2013.

No matter how often officials at the MacArthur Foundation keeps pointing out that they bestow "fellowships," people insist on calling them "genius awards" -- sort of the way people keep saying "Obamacare" instead of "Affordable Health Care Act. "  One reason why the "genius" tag has stuck, of course, is that so many of those receiving these annual pats on the back (at $625,000 a pat) really do seem like geniuses. They're certainly not like you and me. Jeremy Denk, one of the recent 2013 honorees, is a case in point.

The North Carroll girls basketball team is 5-4 behind the superb all-around play of junior guard Megan Bach. The five wins surpass last year's total of four. Bach, 5 feet 7, is averaging 11.5 points, six rebounds and two assists per game. Megan's younger sister Caitlina, a 5-11 freshman, also has become a force as a post player averaging a team-leading 13.5 points and 8.5 rebounds. How do you deal with a 5-11 freshman sister who is already a star? It's great. It provides me with some support inside, which I'm not used to having.

St. Anne's Church in Annapolis was filled last weekend with the miraculous sound of the Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus, joined by the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and six guest soloists for two great performances of Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B-minor. This performance of Bach's medley of masterworks was the first by Live Arts Maryland music director J. Ernest Green and his chorus, lending the added luster reflected by their joint discovery of its musical secrets. Regarded as a supreme achievement by music scholars, Bach's Mass is also an enigma, a Latin work composed by the Protestant "Cantor of Leipzig," and finished in the last year of his life.

The Bach Concert Series will welcome the new year with music written for the occasion — "Am Neujahrstag" ("For New Year's Day"), Part Four of Bach's "Christmas Oratorio. " Technically, the performance will be one day late, since this series presents its free programs on the first Sunday of every month, but that's close enough. This portion of the oratorio for soloists, chorus and orchestra offers a reflection on the biblical passage concerning the naming and circumcision of Jesus.
