____ to Mozart after his death. Many people now know and like his ____ .
Teacher: The task for the third group of students: You will read some more interesting information
about Mozart and tell everybody you have learned about this great composer.
1. When Mozart was a small boy he played the clavier and the violin, but he was afraid of the
trumpet very much. He didn’t like the sound of this instrument. One day his father decided to
suppress his son’s fear of the trumpet and began playing to his face. Hardly had little Wolfgang
heard such a deafening sound he fainted. His father decided not to make him play trumpet any
more.
2. Here is an announcement of the concert, which was given by Mozart and his sister in Paris:
“Today, on August 30, 1763, at 6 p. m. the last concert will take place: a girl of 12 years old
and her brother of seven will play the clavier. The girl will perform the most difficult
compositions of famous masters and the boy will play the violin and will perform the clavier
concerto and also will play blindfolded so well as if he can see the keyboard perfectly, then he
will imitate all the sounds emitted with different instruments or things such as bells, glasses,
alarm-clocks. And at last he will play the organ as much as the audience wishes since he can do
it perfectly”.
3. When Mozart was twelve he started composing operas. Famous composers and musicians of
that time, who had admired Mozart’s talent before, were afraid of his great success; they saw a
serious rival in him and began spreading the news that it was his father not the boy himself who
wrote operas. They hated him and became Mozart’s enemies. It was very difficult to prove the
public that it was really young Mozart who composed such beautiful operas. The tunes from his
opera “The Marriage of Figaro” could be heard everywhere. People loved the opera, it became
the folk music. Later, in 1875, when Mozart’s opera “The Marriage of Figaro” was suggested
to be staged in Moscow Conservatory, Pyotr Tchaikovsky, the outstanding Russian composer,
made the translation of the text of it into Russian. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky valued Mozart very
much. One day he said, “I am much indebted to Mozart that I’ve devoted my life to music. He
was the first who made me love music most of all in my life”.
4. Mozart died very suddenly after a short illness. Rumors had it that he had been poisoned, but it
is more likely that he had a weak heart. He died so poor that only the gravedigger attended his
funeral. There are many legends around Mozart’s death. They say two weeks before his death a
man in black visited him anonymously and ordered him to write a requiem. Mozart agreed
because he needed money badly. He was a romantic and impressionable man. He felt sure that
it was his death. The visitor in black was just a certain count who wanted to publish the
requiem as his own composition.
Teacher: Now, let’s listen to the stories about Mozart.
Учащиеся первой группы читают вслух текст в правильной последовательности. Учащиеся
второй группы проверяют себя, правильно ли они вставили пропущенные слова. Учащиеся
третьей группы делают короткие сообщения, о которых не читали и не знают их
одноклассники.
Teacher: Thank you very much for your work. Now let’s play. We’ll see who can ask questions
properly.
Каждая команда выбирает номер вопроса на табло. Вопрос записан на листочке, но его
части перемешаны. Нужно задать вопрос правильно. Если вопрос задан верно, то первая
команда получает треугольник, вторая кружочек, третья квадрат. Команда, набравшая
большее количество фигур на табло, побеждает.
