Mozart's solemn "Great" Mass — a worthy heir to Bach's B-minor Mass and forebear of Beethoven's Missa solemnis — inspires with high-wire singing and the transcendent Et incarnatus est. The Philharmonic's own Carter Brey reveals the intensity and incandescence of Haydn's First Cello Concerto. Nina C. Young's commissioned work, "Tread softly," kicks off Project 19.
Project 19 is a multiyear New York Philharmonic initiative that features commissions by 19 women composers in honor of the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
