7. Alfred Brendel
The legendary pianist Alfred Brendel bids farewell to Birmingham in 2008. Brendel had been a regular visitor to the hall ever since his cycle of all the Beethoven sonatas in Symphony Hall's second season. His final concert, which took in great works by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert was Brendel's 15th appearance at Symphony Hall.
