Violin player remixes Nokia tune

A violinist who was interrupted by a mobile phone going off is a new internet sensation.
Violin player shows his class by remixing phone tune
A violin player surprised his audience when he responded to the classic Nokia ringtone interruption during his performance by playing the recognisable tune on his musical instrument.

Lukas Kmit, a Slovakian musician, was midway through an exquisite performance, captivating his audience with his deft skills, when one of the most frowned upon incidences occurred – someone's mobile went off.

However, testament to his character, Mr Kmit, showing he had a sense of humour to match his talent, added what can only be described as a remix to his show.

After the performance he received a standing ovation, to which he humbly bowed. He could well be a major star in the making.

The video has gone viral on YouTube, racking up nearly a million views.

It is in stark contrast to a similar incident earlier this month when the New York Philharmonic brought its delightful rendition of Mahler's 9th Symphony to a grinding halt until the ringing stopped.

The conductor's actions were understandable as the piece of music was about to enter a silent period – the ringing would have ruined that.
