Oops. I mean Boosey & Hawkes. So sorry.

Welcome to the world’s finest selection of classical music ringtones! From Bach, Brahms and Beethoven to American icon Aaron Copland to modern pioneers John Adams, Steve Reich and more, you’ll find an exceptional sound to match your exceptional phone.

Read about it.

I can hear it now … I’ll be on stage, about to play some Copland or Adams (if we ever program Adams) and all of the sudden some audience member’s phone will play the piece.

It could happen ….

I suppose Boosey & Hawkes just doesn’t make enough money renting out their music. This side business should really help them with financial difficulties.

Wonder what living composers think of this. (Would it be flattering or distressing to hear their “tune” ringing as they were out shopping for groceries?)
