Just letting you know that I dídn´t take her to the concerto, I thought that,as somebody said, the Mahler 9 may not be the best first contact with classical music, so I decided to take her to a jazz club near the theatre and she looks more interested and excited by the idea. Wish me luck!
Thanks for all your advices and experiencies!
Without knowing anything about the woman in question, I would agree to play it a bit safer. New experiences, yes, but also be responsive to what she shows an interest in. She may have loved the Mahler, though, (some people who like rock music can be very open to other genres), but it seems it was difficult to tell, even for you! Perhaps another time, once you've got to know her better. She may develop an interest in classical music, through knowing you. But, you can find that out along the way...
And...best of luck!
