Early-music specialist Nicholas McGegan returns to the BSO to lead a vibrant program of music for chamber orchestra, from Haydn’s effervescent Symphony No. 80 to two sunny Vivaldi concertos featuring Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital. The concert concludes with the youthful verve of Bizet’s Symphony No. 1, composed when he was 17 and a student at the Paris Conservatory.
