Ohrlando’s Chamber Ensemble returns for March concerts

Ohrlando’s Chamber Ensemble will perform two chamber music concerts this weekend.


Ohrlando’s will guide the audience from the classical through the romantique period to one of the most outstanding oboe solo pieces in the 20th century, a selection of the magical “Six Metamorphoses after Ovid” by Benjamin Britten. A sonata by the Bohemian composer Jan Baptist Vanhal, a musician well respected by Mozart and Beethoven, and a reconstructed fragment by the young Beethoven will be heard. The program includes a French concours piece by Eugene Bourdeau, an American composition by Arthur Foote and a Wagner-inspired impression by Fritz Mareczek.

The first concert is at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Queen Emma Community Center at Christ Church Episcopal in Kealakekua, followed by a concert at 3 p.m. Sunday at a private residence in Kailua-Kona. The concerts feature Roland Maurer on oboe, English horn and bassoon, and Ursula Hesse on piano.
