2. Your date will think you’re very cultured when you tell him/her, “they’ll be playing Rachmaninoff’s symphony no. 2, the most spellbinding in my opinion…”

 …and then you can actually hear why Rachmaninoff’s Symphony no. 2 actually is the most spellbinding of Rachmaninoff’s three symphonies

3. You can use this opportunity to begin learning more about the masters of classical music if you’re new to it

4. It’ll help you practice pronouncing Prokofiev

5. You’ll be introduced to Vilde Frang, who totally rocks as a soloist on the violin
