At Renegade Productions Inc. in Hunt Valley, 6,000 square feet of space contains hair and makeup stations, a "green" standby room (that happens to be purple), a casting room and a cavernous studio complete with professional lighting and thick black and green curtains that sweep around its perimeter. That soundproof studio can be transformed into nearly anything. For several Comcast commercials it was turned into what was supposed to be Cal Ripken's living room. For a Time Warner Cable training video, it became a baseball stadium, an amusement park and the Serengeti region of Africa.

The performance of the Tchaikovsky Concerto No. 1 of pianist Tzimon Barto, conductor Christoph Eschenbach and the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Kennedy Center last night was so brawny that it was possible to forget how intelligent an interpretation it was.Barto can indeed disembowel a piano, playing double octaves at warp speed and producing a magnificent clangor. But, much more importantly, he was able to tease the ear into suspense so that the flood of double octaves he produced in the concerto's outer movements satisfied the audience's deep need for red meat that was scarcely cooked.

From the looks of him, Tzimon Barto is the only pianist in the world who can play the No. 1 Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto, then bench-press the Steinway when he is finished.The enormous bodybuilder-pianist who was in town last weekend to play Tchaikovsky's top warhorse with conductor Gisele Ben-Dor and the Annapolis Symphony probably never will be confused with Alfred Brendel or Charles Rosen as a patrician intellectual of the keyboard.Mr. Barto's playing is too much of the moment for all that.

After 23 years, after never telling another soul, Charlene Barto finally admitted the truth.She confided in her priest that her husband beat her. With the priest's help, she found the courage to leave him -- only to have to survive another ordeal: an emotionally and financially exhausting wait to get divorced.Her long path toward ending a lifetime of denial and starting anew is one Barto hopes will be shortened for other battered spouses under legislation that has gained broad support in the Maryland General Assembly.

Severna Park coach Dick Barto doesn't think there's a golf team in the county that can beat his, but that doesn't mean he thinks his Falcons are unbeatable.Barto has been around the sport long enough to know that the best player or best team doesn't always finish atop the leader board."We can beat ourselves, and in golf that is very possible," said Barto, who was named The Baltimore Sun's Golf Coach of the Year last season. "The potential is there and it has been for some time, but for the past few years, Arundel has been a little ahead of us and now we're the team to beat."

This is the story of how Johnny Barto Smith Jr., from Eustis, Fla., became Tzimon Barto, the world-famous pianist.You can find Barto's discs, with their cover art of the good-looking pianist, at any record store. There are plenty of them -- nine since 1987, when the prestigious EMI label began recording the then-obscure 24-year-old pianist.But if Barto's well-known, he's also a little weird -- at least, the playing on his records sometimes is. Barto, who performs Rachmaninov's Third Concerto on Friday and Saturday evening with the Annapolis Symphony, is to the performance of music what deconstructionist critics are to the reading of literature: He can make the most familiar piece of music sound unfamiliar.
