The Boston Symphony Orchestra brings its Symphony Hall subscription season to a close this week with a second program led by conductor emeritus Bernard Haitink. Last week’s Haitink-led concerts paired Mahler Fourth Symphony and Schubert’s Fifth. This week boasts a similarly spirited pairing of familiar masterworks: Brahms’s Violin Concerto and Schubert’s “Great” C Major Symphony.

This week’s soloist is Nikolaj Znaider, a gifted Danish violinist who, while still in his 30s, has also been developing a second career as a conductor. Znaider’s most memorable local appearance was his 2010 BSO debut with a beautifully integrated performance of Elgar’s rarely heard Violin Concerto under the baton of Sir Colin Davis. One sensed a rare connection at that time between composer, conductor and repertoire.
