A conductor's iPhone

I took a couple of boys on a trip today to hear a famous conductor-composer talking about his work.  Was mightliy pleased that he started life as a horn player, as have a few other conductors.

Anyway, during the course of the afternoon, he played the third movement of his violin concerto.  This commenced with him doing a pat down of all of his pockets til he found his iPhone and plugged it in.  Good piece.

Later on he played us a song he had written and after a big explanation of the poem, along came the song.

 Then there was a burst of Wagner as the phone part of his iPhone rang.
