CRS: GERHARDT, cello & OSBORNE, piano – Sat (Nov 4) 2:30pm

Steven Osborne, whose memorable 2015 recital was a highlight of our season, returns in an exceptional partnership with brilliant cellist Alban Gerhardt.

Alban Gerhardt has established himself as one of the greatest cellists of our time. The cello sings under his hands, standard works are newly discovered and unknown pieces are brought to life. Gerhardt fascinates audiences with the combination of an unerring musical instinct, intense emotionality and a natural, arresting stage presence.

Few present-day pianists have continued to expand their repertoire with the zeal of Steven Osborne. His concerts are remarkable, thought-provoking and deeply moving. His vast technical command is balanced by penetrating insight, mesmerizing colour control and breathtaking articulation.
Gerhardt and Osborne possess an almost subliminal sense of what the other is about to do, so that every musical gesture they make seems totally spontaneous (The Guardian).
Tickets: $25. Students $10
Subscriptions: $120 for the six-concert series. Students $50.
For ticket info, call 604.885.0991 or email coastrecital@dccnet.com

LAND OF MINE (SC Film Soc) Sat (Nov 11) 2pm

Country: Denmark/Germany 2015 
Language: German, Danish, English with English subtitles
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 100 min.

Director: Martin Zandvliet

Synopsis: Based on actual events, this harrowing film takes place in Denmark at the end of WWII when young German POWs, mostly teens with almost no training, are forced to clear the beaches of over one million hidden land mines. Although the consequences are horrific, the Danes have little sympathy for their former occupiers. The film serves as a poignant reminder that revenge destroys more than it satisfies and compassion can help the healing process.

Presented by the Sunshine Coast Film Society. All attendees must be 18 years and older.
