Even better was Carl Maria von Weber’s Andante and Hungarian Rondo for Bassoon and Orchestra, a concerto-like work. To pizzicato string accompaniment, soloist Kramer floated the Andante’s marvelous opening theme. Her sound was intensely warm, plummy, reedy — operatic, with earthy low notes and full-throated high ones. As she and the orchestra took off through the Hungarian dance passages, Kramer made her wide leaps across registers sound easy. Ditto for her articulation of the bullet-train passages leading to the Rondo’s conclusion. This showcase work (originally composed for viola and orchestra and later re-arranged by Weber for bassoon) was a charmer. And Kramer, one of the orchestra’s most popular members, was rewarded with red roses, tossed at her from the rear of the orchestra by bassoonist Carolyn Lockhart.

She first had an affair with ballet legend Rudolf Nureyev and then she fell in love with Onassis, despite his own marriage and his longtime affair with opera singer Maria Callas. But it turns out that Radziwill made the mistake of introducing her big sister to Onassis, first by having the shipping tycoon invite the U.S. first lady to spend some time with him on his Greek island of Scorpios, following the death of her son Patrick who was born prematurely in early 1963.
