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 kicks off Project 19.
