The "Nokia Tune" Comes From This 112 Year Old Guitar Composition By The Spanish Guitar Master

How do you know when a person owns a Nokia mobile phone? It's when you hear the distinctive startup and ring tone that has been included in the Finnish mobile giant's handsets since 1994.

The Nokia tune, was originally called "Grande Valse" on Nokia phones, the same name given to a composition by Frederic Chopin. But Nokia's theme has always been credited to a Spanish guitarist and composer Francisco Tarrega and his song from 1902, the almost identically named, "Gran Valse". Why?

Well the truth is Tarrega was Nokia's inspiration but he didn't compose the entire piece without inspiration of his own. In this case, it was a 3 second snippet from Chopin's Grande Valse.
