The word "diva" gets tossed around so loosely that it's startling - and richly satisfying - to be in the presence of a real one. Renee Fleming earned her divahood through a combination of a creamy soprano voice, the technical resources to make the most of it and superb musical instincts. Add a winning personality, good looks and the ability to hold thousands of listeners in the palm of her hand, and you're talking diva with a capital D. The crowd at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall Sunday had a hard time letting Fleming go; no less than five encores would do. The formal part of the recital, presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society and the Vocal Arts Society, might be dismissed by the cynically inclined as a transparent, pop-music-style record promotion.

Officially, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's 2013-14 season opened last week. Musically, I'd say it really got going last night, when the ensemble kicked into high gear to deliver sterling performances of works by Leonard Bernstein and Maurice Ravel. Music director Marin Alsop has given Bernstein, her mentor, a prominent place in the BSO's programming and discography -- a Naxos recording of his compelling "Mass" earned a Grammy nomination a few years ago. This week, Alsop is focusing on the composer's Symphony No. 2, "Age of Anxiety," which Naxos will record during concerts at Meyerhoff Hall Friday and Saturday.

"He has such a flourish about him, doesn't he?" That's Marin Alsop, speaking about Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the French pianist with the scintillant technique, refined musicality and really great clothes. Thibaudet is the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's soloist for two weeks, starting with an all-Gershwin feast that is being recorded for Decca, his longtime label. He'll play "Rhapsody in Blue," Concerto in F and the "I Got Rhythm" Variations. Next week, Thibaudet will take on a bravura piece by Liszt - "Jean-Yves is such a virtuoso," Alsop says, "a 21st-century Liszt."

Marin Alsop's tenure as music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has been notable for several things, prominent among them the programming of compositions by Leonard Bernstein, her childhood idol and mentor when she was starting her conducting career in the 1980s. Among the most sizzling performances the BSO has given with Alsop over the years have been those of Bernstein works - the genre-bending "Mass" and two of his three emotionally complex symphonies, No. 1, "Jeremiah," and No. 3, "Kaddish.
