In reference to earlier-this-month’s story of an iPhone alarm interrupting a performance by the NY Philharmonic, more than a few commentators have highlighted a video of violinist Lukáš Kmiťs improvisational response to the ringing of a Nokia cell phone. But only a few of those more-than-a-few have mentioned that the Nokia ringtone originates from the classical guitar piece “Gran Vals” by Francisco Tárrega (see 0:15 of the video above). Harder to play off Crazy Frog, I’d bet.
