Violinist gets interrupted by Nokia ringtone, gives it right back
It is pretty hard to go anywhere these days without hearing the familiar sound of a stock ringtone from someone else’s phone, even in situations where most people have the decency to switch to silent mode.

As we saw earlier this month at the New York Philharmonic performance, some performers find an unwelcomed cell phone ring so infringing, that they must halt the entire performance.

When Lukáš Kmit was faced with a similar situation while playing his violin in Slovakia, he responded in a completely different manner. As you can see in the video below, he quickly regains his composure and plays back the famous Nokia tune, delighting the audience instead of letting the interruption spoil the performance.

We have to say, well played sir!

Very Impressive! But this does NOT excuse the owner of the cellphone at all!

Because it's a Sunday and PA doesn't really have a lot of news posted on Sunday's. So why not?

When an iPhone rings during a show, its the end of the world, but when a Nokia does it, its alright. Dx

Its not about iPhones,Androids or Nokias here. It's about ill mannered people and prompt response by the violinist! Get a life or troll about your iBrick somewhere else

A note to Charlene. Lukáš Kmit is a viola player not the violin

They only try too pull a Apple only at a classical concert just too market themselves. Would throw the bum out. You dont see Black Berry or Android phones making sounds at classical concerts. Anyone would of know how too lower your volume or AT least mute your phone before the concert. Learn too show coutersy of others.

nice move on the violinist's part to bring a little levity to a rude situation.
