Read the text and do the tasks (1—6) after it circling one of the ietters (A—D) Musical Cat (Part I) After lunch Louisa, as usual, went to the piano. She was a competent pianist and a genuine music-lover, and almost every afternoon she spent an hour or so playing for herself. The cat was now lying on the sofa, and she paused to stroke it as she went by. It opened its eyes, looked at her for a moment, then closed them again and went back to sleep. “You’re an awfully nice cat,” she said. “And such a beautiful colour. I wish I could keep you. She went over and sat down on the long piano bench, but she didn’t immediately start to play. One of her special little pleasures was to make every day a kind of concert day, with a carefully arranged programme which she worked out in detail before she began. She never liked to break her enjoyment by having to stop while she wondered what to play next. All she wanted was a brief pause after each piece while the audience clapped enthusiastically and called for more. It was so much nicer to imagine an audience, and now and again while she was playing — on the lucky days — the room would begin to swim and fade and darken, and she would see nothing but row after row of seats and a sea of white faces upturned towards her, listening with a rapt and adoring concentration. Sometimes she played from memory, sometimes from music. Today she would play from memory; that was the way she felt. Ж В»Й^г'^ The second one And what should the programme be? She sat before the piano with her small hands clasped on her lap, a plump rosy little person with a round and still quite pretty face. By looking slightly to the right, she could see the cat curled up asleep on the sofa, and its silvery-grey coat was beautiful against the purple of the cushion. How about some Bach to begin with? Or, better still, Vivaldi? Then perhaps a little Schumann. Carnaval? That would be fun. And after that — well, a touch of Liszt for a change. One of the Petrarch Sonnets. that was the loveliest — the E major. Then another Schumann. And lastly, for the encore a Brahms waltz, or maybe two of them if she felt like it. A very nice programme, one that she could play easily without the music. She moved herself a little closer to the piano... lifted her hands to the keyboard and began to play. She wasn’t at that particular moment watching the cat at all — as a matter of fact she had forgotten its presence — but as the first deep notes of the Vivaldi sounded softly in the room, she became aware out of the corner of one eye, of a sudden flurry, a flash of movement on the sofa to her right. She stopped playing at once. The animal, who a few seconds before had been sleeping peacefully, was now sitting bolt upright on the sofa, very tense, the whole body aquiver, ears up and eyes wide open, staring at the piano. Louisa was watching the cat’s face closely now. She was curious to see what would happen a second time — she reached out her hands to the keyboard and began again to play the Vivaldi. This time the cat was ready for it, and all that happened to begin with was a small extra tensing of the body. But as the music swelled and quickened into that first exciting rhythm of the introduction to the fugue, a strange look that amounted almost to ecstasy began to settle upon the creature’s face. At that moment Louisa could have sworn that the animal was actually appreciating the work. What she saw (or thought she saw) was something she had noticed many times on the faces of people listening very closely to a piece of music. When the sound takes complete hold of them and drowns them in itself, a peculiar intensely ecstatic look comes over them that you can recognise as easily as a smile. So far as Louisa could see, the cat was now wearing almost exactly this kind of look. * ; 3 5 6 ('after Edward the Conqueror by Roald Dahl^ Louisa usually spent her afternoons A. entertaining her friends B. playing for her family C. in the loneliness of her house D. playing with her cat Louisa______the piano.

Musical Cat (Part II) Louisa finished the fugue, then played the siciliana, and all the way through she (keep)^ watching the cat on the sofa. The final proof for her that the animal (listen)^ came at the end when the music (stop)^. It (blink)^, (stir)® itself a little, (stretch)® a leg, (take)^ a quick glance round the room, then (look)® expectantly in her direction. It was precisely the way a concert-goer (react)® when music momentarily releases him in the pause between two movements of a symphony. The behaviour was so thoroughly human it (give)^° her a queer agitated feeling in the chest. Maybe, she (think)^^, the creature (not, enjoy)^^ it at all. Maybe it’s a sort of hypnotic reaction, like with snakes. After all, if you (can)^® (charm)^^ a snake with music, then why not a cat? Except that millions of cats (hear)^® the stuff every day and, as far as she (know)^®, there’d never yet been a case of one behaving like that. This one (act)^^ as though it (follow)^® every single note. It was certainly a fantastic thing. Louisa went straight into the next part of the programme — Liszt’s second Petrarch Sonnet. And now an extraordinary thing happened. She (not, play)^^ more than three or four bars when the animal’s whiskers (begin)^^ perceptibly (twitch)^^. Slowly it (draw)^^ itself up to an extra height, (lay)^^ its head on one side, then on the other, and (stare)^^ into space with a kind of frowning concentrated look. Louisa (fascinate)^^, and with her little mouth half open and half smiling, she (con- tinue)^^ (play)^^, waiting to see what on earth was going (happen)^^ next. Ш- 19.

The idea behind this was that, if a building or object is perfectly fitted for its function and constructed with sensible regard for the materials used, it will be pleasing to the eye and satisfying to the mind. The great Swiss architect, 1._____, Le Corbusier, the pseudonym of Charles Jeanneret (1887—1965), pointed to Greek temples as perfect examples of this. The Functionalists discarded traditional conventions and superficial ornament, and had a great simplifying and purifying influence on design in every kind of material. This new tradition soon spread around the world 2. _______. ^Й‘ •''tS^yShVis. ^S-;' ?5?t Й^УV^- SIS2 Ж ш шМ ^'-^rtfifi J. А new method of building construction — reinforced concrete — was perfectly suited to this structural approach. Concrete floors were supported on upright steel girders. The outer skin could be of any suitable material — 3. _____. The inner walls were merely partitions which could be placed and replaced wherever required as they played no part in supporting the building. The many opportunities afforded by this building method were demonstrated by Le Corbusier as early as in 1915. In the 1920s and ’30s Le Corbusier’s most significant work was in urban planning. He advanced ideas dramatically different from the comfortable, low-rise communities proposed by earlier city planners. He also built many villas and several small apartment complexes and office buildings. In these hard-edged smooth-; surfaced geometric volumes he created a language of what he called pure prisms — rectangular blocks of concrete, steel and glass, often endowed with roof gardens 4. _____. After World War II Le Corbusier moved away from purism. He showed the way to free architecture from 5. ______. Le Corbusier was commissioned by the French government toj plan and build his Vertical City in Marseilles. The result was a huge block of 340 villas raised above the ground, laced with two elevated thoroughfares of shops and other services and topped by a roof-garden community centre that contained, among other things, 6. ____. His reputation led to a commission from the Indian government to plan the city of Chandigarh, the new capital of Punjab, and to design and build the Government Centre and several of the city’s other structures. These handcrafted buildings represented a second, more humanistic phase in Le Corbusier’s work. His revolutionary design for the church of Notre Dame du Hart at Ronchamp in France, 7.______, contrasts strongly with-the earlier, impersonal approach. With its curved surfaces and an absence of straight lines and right angles, architecture becomes here almost a form of sculpture. Le Corbusier’s church at Ronchamp has been a great influence on the designers of other unconventional buildings in more recent years. Today architecture seems to be suffering from a kind of tug-of-war. The need to economize pulls it towards the featureless, tower-block type of construction, where mass-production anc mechanisation are possible. On the other hand, there is a desin to avoid regimentation. A more personal approach is favoured. Buildings which are the chosen creations of gifted architects, 8. ____, are naturally very costly to design and erect. They can usually only be considered for such special buildings as national theatres, art galleries and churches. 4. Find in the text Le Corbusier (Ex. 3) words and word combinations that mean the following: 1. well suited for something 2. stopped using 3. a long strong beam used for constructing bridges and large buildings 4. important 5. having the shape of four straight sides and right angles of 90° 6. was given the job of making something 7. a public road or street used by traffic 8. different from what most people consider to be usual or normal 9. a situation in which two people or groups try in a determined way to get something they want 10. strict organisation and control 11. very expensive to plan and build 5.

The programme was the result of a vote conducted to determine who the United Kingdom public considers the greatest British people have been in history. The poll resulted in some unlikely and controversial candidates including Guy Fawkes, who was executed for trying to blow up the Parliament of England; King Richard III, suspected of murdering his nephews; James Connolly, an Irish nationalist who was executed by the Crown in 1916. In addition to the British natives, some notable non-British entrants were listed as well. These included former Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who was born in Zanzibar when it was a British colony. Both Alfred the Great and Boudica are from an era where Britishness was a concept of the future. The top 19 entries were exclusively of self-declared English origin, one of them is Sir Ernest Shackleton (February 15, 1874 — if, f--*- ■.'Viy,-’. y< .*§'S .... January 5, 1922) who was born into an English family settled in Ireland when that country was still part of the UK. He was an Anglo-Irish explorer who was one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. His first experience of the polar regions had been as third officer on Captain Scott’s Discovery Expedition, 1901—1904, from which he was sent home early on health grounds. Determined to make amends for this perceived personal failure, he returned to Antarctica in 1907 as leader of the Nimrod Expedition. In Ernest Hen Shackleton ЩШ ШШ тш. Щ Ш Ш‘а:Г Чг: S5SH January 1909 he and three companions made a southern march which established a record Farthest South latitude, by far the closest convergence on either Pole in exploration history. For this achievement, Shackleton was knighted by King Edward VII on his return home. After the race to the South Pole ended in 1912 with Roald Amundsen’s conquest, Shackleton turned his attention to what he said was the one remaining great object of Antarctic journeying — the crossing of the continent from sea to sea, via the Pole. To this end he made preparations for what became the Imperial Transantarctic Expedition, 1914—1917. Disaster struck this expedition when its ship. Endurance, was trapped in pack ice. It was slowly crushed, before the shore parties could be landed. There followed a dramatic sequence of exploits, and an ultimate escape with no lives lost. Those events would eventually assure Shackleton’s heroic status, although this was not immediately evident. In 1921 he went back to Antarctica with the Shackleton-Rowett Expedition, intending to carry out a programme of scientific and survey activities. Before the expedition could begin this work, Shackleton died of a heart attack while his ship. Quest, was moored in South Georgia. At his family’s request he was buried there. 1.

Ъ1. UNIT ONE No. 1 (Ex. 1) • Speaker 1. Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Germany. All his family were musical. From an early age Bach played the violin and the viola. He studied music passionately, often creeping out of bed to copy music from his brother’s collection. At the age of 37 Bach moved to Leipzig where he lived for the rest of his life. Here he wrote some of his greatest pieces of music — mostly music for singing and for the organ. When Bach died, his music was almost at once forgotten. • Speaker 2. Ludwig van Beethoven was a German musician who composed some of the greatest music ever known. This included symphonies, concertos, and choral and chamber'music. When he was young, Beethoven was well known as a pianist and was admired by many famous people. He began to go deaf at the age of 30 but continued to compose music even when he was totally deaf. • Speaker 3. Aaron Copland helped develop a music that is clearly American. He was born in New York at the beginning of the twentieth century and died in 1990. He was a composer who wrote many different types of music, including music for movies. He is most famous for having blended folk music from many parts of the United States and from Mexico with traditional forms of classical music. He also ihddrpprated jazz into his work at a time when many thought it unsuitable lor serious composers* • Speaker 4. George Friderlc m He was a Сгетшап-Ъогп British composer, famous for the oratorio Messiah and the orchestral Fireworks Music and Water Music. He wrote about 21 oratorios. Handel became the British subject in 1726. • Speaker 5. Franz Joseph Haydn was born in 1732. He was an Austrian composer known as the father of symphony. For 30 years he wrote music at the royal edutt. He wrote 104 symphonies. Many of them used the orchestra in^ po.werful new way. He also wrote fine pieces for the piano, and qdartets for four stringed instruments. Mozart and Beethoven both studied Haydn’s work. Later, this helped them compose some of their spldridid' music. • Speaker 6. Richard Wagner was a German composer whose music brought about great changes in the art of opera. He believed that the music and the plot of an opera should be closely bound together, in the same way that the words and the plot of a play are. Wagner wrote his own librettos for his operas. No. 2 (Ex. 2) The Dance The material of music is sounds, produced by vibrations of the air. The material of the dance is the human body and the physical movements produced by the muscles. Music and dance are so closely related that it is impossible to distinguish which aspects of each art came first. Perhaps the stamping of feet gave primitive man the idea for percussion instruments, or perhaps a footstamping dance was inspired by the rhythm of a drum. So much is dancing an expression of feeling that the desire to dance has been described as instinctive. Certainly, human beings are not the only animals to perform expressive movements. Many others produce movement patterns for purposes of communication, such as the dances of birds. Physical movement is influenced by environment. As a result different kinds of dancing have a tendency to develop in different parts of the world. For example, people living in the mountains who have always been hunters tend to develop a springing step with a weight on the toes. They hold their heads high to look up at the hillsides. Their dances often include jumping. People who live on the plains concerned with the cultivation of crops, have their attention directed more to the ground. Their dances are based on a heavier step with much stamping as though they ask the earth to bring forth its riches. American Indians living on the plains gather in circles, looking down and stamping their feet, addressing the earth from which they believe all life comes. Like early music, primitive dancing has an element of magic, of communication with the gods. Hunters dance imitating the movements of the hunt and of the animals who provide them with the necessities of life. They hope that a dance will bring success in the hunt. Primitive farmers imitate the natural phenomena of sun and rain in the hope that the gods will provide them with both in due time. In addition to the steps and the pattern of the dance costume has been important from the beginning. A dancer usually put on the mask ifm Ш m -тщщ rmim шМ i ш m that represented the god or spirit with required. He wore the feathers, skins or presented. whom communication was horns of an animal he re- UNIT TWO г ш No. 3 (Ex. 1) Greek Architecture In architecture the ancient Greeks reached a level of perfection that has set a standard for all time and established a classic tradition. Their own homes were rather simple but when they designed and built houses for their gods they tried hard to make them impressive. The Greeks knew how to build arches but only used them where they could not be seen. In their temples they preferred the dignity and restfulness of the monolithic type of architecture and vertical columns. The Greeks built without mortar, the substance that holds stones together. They lay their blocks of perfect marble in place and left the force of gravity to hold them there. When we look at their noble temples we see at a glance that their structure is solid and logical and it pleases us more than any lavish ornament could. A Greek temple stands on a platform with steps leading up to it from any direction. In the centre stands a hall in which the statue of god or goddess was erected. This is usually surrounded on all sides by colonnades. There are three distinct styles in Greek architecture. They are known as the three orders, and they are easily distinguished by the kind of capital used at the top of the columns. The earliest was the Doric order, then came the Ionic, and last the Corinthian. Time came when either of the three could be used and a Greek architect had a choice. But when he had chosen to use one of these three orders, he did not try to make any radical changes. His aim was to achieve greater perfection within the limits of his chosen style. This quest for greater perfection is typical of Greek art. The most important elements of Greek architecture were kept constant by the Greeks and by the Romans who came after them, and by architects of later times who have chosen to work within this classical tradition. No. 4 (Ex. 2) Castle One of the few places where kings and lords in the Middle Ages could feel safe was behind the thick stone walls of their castles. There they and their men could fight off attacks by roving bandits and sit out long sieges by invading armies. The motte and bailey castle, dating from about the 9th century, was the earliest European castle form. Built on a natural or artificial mound or motte and protected by one or more circular walls and often by a moat, the castle consisted of the keep, a wood or stone tower and some other buildings necessary for the housing of those who lived in the castle. These were situated in the bailey, the open area within the castle walls. The Tower of London is an exact example of the motte and bailey castle. Its White Tower is the original Norman keep. As castles developed, they became larger and more comfortable and small “villages” of huts emd other buildings appeared inside the castle walls. Castles had high, thick stone walls. A wall-walk ran right round the top, and through each tower. Soldiers could run from one point of attack to another without ever showing themselves to their enemies. Rounded towers stand up to attacks much better than square towers. The towers protruded from the main wall. This gave the defenders a better chance to fire on the attackers and stop them from reaching the castle walls. With the invention of gunpowder the castle lost its ability to defend. Attacking artillery could shoot into the heart of the castle and take it without even reaching the doors. Thus, by the 16th century, the medieval could no longer fulfill a defensive function. The architectural style of the castle, however, continued to be used because it was beautiful and impressive. UNIT THREE No. 5 (Ex. 1) V ___ _ _ The Seven Wonders of Russia contest was organised in the autumn of 2007. The project was launched in October. Its aim was to popularize Russia’s cultural and natural landmarks and to draw the public attention to these places. More than 25 million people took part in the online voting to select the winners. After the first stage of the voting Russia’s 49 places of interest were selected but only fourteen of them were left on the preliminary list after the second stage of the contest. And there were only seven left on the final list. On the 12th of June 2008 4^ '-V. - ШЙ йЛ- Ш) S5 Ш щ- %•(’ ШТ1. during the celebration of Russia’s Day in Moscow the winners were announced; Russia had summed up the results of the national contest devoted to the most beautiful and important places in the country. Seven Wonders of Russia include man-made masterpieces such as St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, the complex of palaces in a municipal town of Petergof near St. Petersburg and The Motherland Calls! statue in Mamayev Kurgan in Volgograd. The final list also includes four natural marvels of Russia. They are Mount Elbrus, the Valley of Geysers in Kamchatka region. Lake Baikal and Columns of Erosion — geological wonder in the Komi Republic. No. 6 (Ex. 2) • Speaker 1. Monplaisir is the house where Peter the Great lived while the main imperial residence was being built. He greatly preferred this modest Dutch-style villa to his later luxurious living quarters. The house which is the oldest building in Petergof is open to the public and makes a good choice for a pleasant tour. • Speaker 2. Petergof is a historical monument of the 18th—19th centuries. It is also the kingdom of fountains, the magical play of water that brings you back to the epoch of Peter the Great. Petergof’s construction started in 1714. Such architects as Le Blond, Brounstein, Miketthi, as well as the sculptor Rastrelli were the ones who implemented the ideas of Peter the Great. • Speaker 3. Petergof is situated on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland, 29 kms from St. Petersburg. It is an immensely luxurious and beautifully preserved Imperial estate. It combines several palaces, a number of beautiful parks and a lot of magnificent statues and fountains, lending it the epithet The Russian Versailles. • Speaker 4. In 1714 on a high littoral terrace of an imperial palace was founded and behind it the Upper Garden was laid out. The Upper Garden is a pretty baroque formal garden. During ten years the Lower Park with its canals was laid out. In the lower park there were constructed several palaces. The park was planned so that every palace had its portion of fountains. Petergof’s parks occupy a territory of about 1000 hectare. • Speaker 5. The palaces and parks of Petergof are one of St. Petersburg’s most popular attractions. Versailles was Peter the Great’s inspiration when he decided to build an imperial palace and many say Petergof is even more beautiful than the famous French complex. But Petergof derives its name from the German for Peter’s V Yard or Peter's Home. Petergof is often called as Petrodvorets, the Russian equivalent of Petergof, and some guide books might still refer to it as that. • Speaker 6. Petergof is an immense luxurious estate, known as the capital of Russian fountains. The Grand Cascade built in front of the Grand Palace, is one of the largest fountain ensembles in the world. Its bronze sculptures and brass-reliefs are dedicated to Russia’s victories in the Northern War. The central piece of the waterfalls is a gilt Samson rending the jaws of a lion. The statue represents the 1709 Russian victory over the Swedes at Poltava on St. Samson’s day. UNIT FOUR No. 7 (Ex. 1) • Speaker 1. Alexander II was born in Moscow in April 1818 and died in March 1881 in St. Petersburg. He was the Emperor of the Russian Empire from March 3, 1855 until his assassination in 1881. He was also the Grand Duke of Finland and held the title of King of Poland. He devoted the first year of his reign to continue the Crimean War, and after the fall of Sevastopol held negotiations for peace. Then he began a period of radical reforms, encouraged by public opinion. • Speaker 2. Catherine II, called Catherine the Great, was the Empress of Russia. She was born in Germany but had some Russian ancestry. In accordance with the custom then prevailing amongst the German nobility, she received her education chiefly from a French governess and from tutors. Catherine had a reputation as a patron of the arts, literature and education. She wrote a manual for the education of young children and was acquainted with ideas of John Locke and Voltaire. She also founded the famous Smolny Institute. • Speaker 3. Dmitry Mendeleev, a Russian chemist and inventor, was born in a village, near Tobolsk. At the age of 13, after the death of his father, Mendeleev attended the Gymnasium in Tobolsk. In 1849, the now poor Mendeleev family moved to St. Petersburg, and then to the Crimea because of Dmitry’s illness. Mendeleev returned with fully restored health to St. Petersburg in 1857. He became Professor of Chemistry at the University of St. Petersburg and by 1871 had transformed it into an internationally recognised centre for chemistry research. He is credited as being the creator of the first version of the periodic table of elements. Using this table, he predicted the properties of elements yet to be discovered. л • Speaker 4. Peter the Great was one of the greatest rulers in the 17th century. He tried to transform Russia into one of the major European powers. Peter introduced a lot of reforms aimed at modernising the country. Heavily influenced by his western advisors, Peter reorganised the Russian army along European lines and wanted Russia to have a powerful navy. He faced much opposition to these policies at home, but brutally suppressed any and all rebellions against his authority. • Speaker 5. Fyodor Dostoevsky was one of the prominent Russian novelists and writers of fiction. His literary output explores human psychology in the troubled political, social and spiritual context of the 19th—century Russian society and includes such works as Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov. Dostoevsky has also been called one of the founding fathers of the philosophical movement known as existentialism due to his Notes from Underground^ first published in 1864. Nietzsche, the German philosopher, referred to Dostoevsky as the only psychologist from whom he had something to learn. Nietzsche said that Notes from the Underground “cried truth from the blood”. • Speaker 6. Alexander Suvorov, Count Suvorov of Rymnik, Prince of Italy, Count of Holy Roman Empire, was the fourth and last generalissimos of the Russian Empire. He was one of the few great generals in history who never lost a battle. He was also famed for his manual The Science of Victory and noted for the sayings “Train hard, fight easy”. He had a great simplicity of manner, and while on a campaign lived as a private soldier, sleeping on straw. His soldiers adored him. He taught them to attack instantly and decisively. Suvorov often joked with the men and called the common soldiers “brothers”. No. 8 (Ex. 2) Iron Age Britons Most of the millions of people who lived in the Iron Age are anonymous. Only in the last 100 years of the period are some of their names known to us from the writings of foreigners or from inscriptions on coins. Even then, we can name only a few individuals, mostly rulers and mostly men. Several million people probably lived in Britain at the end of the Iron Age. Most people lived in extended family units. Life expectancy was low. Many died in infancy; those who survived often died before they were 35—40. When a child reached the age of 15, one or bo-th of their biological parents were probably dead. Different diseases were common, and there were occasional periods of hunger. We know of many types of Iron Age houses. They are round buildings, which are simpler than walled houses. One of the Iron Age houses was found by archaeologists in Wiltshire, England. It consisted of two circles, one inside the other. The family lived inside the smaller circle and the farm animals were kept in the other one. The men of the family smelted their own iron, from which they made different tools for harvesting. The women made clothes and clay cooking pots. They probably also pounded grain into flour. There is little evidence of what people looked like in those times. Iron Age Britons almost never carved or made images of people. Basic clothing probably consisted of woolen or linen shirts and trousers for men, blouses, dresses or skirts for women; both sexes wearing cloaks or shawls. Evidence from jewellery and other items shows that personal appearance changed over the centuries and that people from one part of Britain might have looked very different to those from another. iff*'' •• Ш Unit One Unit Two Unit Three Unit Four Keys to Exercises 3 24 47 65 85 Scripts.......................................................... 102 afTte- Й«4'- Учебное издание Афанасьева Ольга Васильевна Михеева Ирина Владимировна Баранова Ксения Михайловна Мичурина Светлана Викторовна АНГЛИЙСКИЙ ЯЗЫК Рабочая тетрадь XI класс Пособие для учащихся общеобразовательных учреждений и школ с углублённым изучением английского языка Центр группы германских языков Руководитель Центра В, В.
