Because of a misunderstanding Mason was two and a half hours late for his meeting with the great pianist. Mason was waiting at the gate of the hotel while Paderewski was upstairs, getting more and more annoyed by Mason's delay. Finally Mason went up to see Paderewski and found him friendly enough, but Paderewski's wife was cold and distant. Mason felt embarrassed. He complimented Paderewski with great honor on his "Variations and Fugue on an Original Theme." Then he added, "You don't think that's empty flattery because l'II tell you frankly that I do not care so much for some of your early pieces." Paderewski's wife gave Mason a stony look and said, "What pieces? What do you
not care for?" Mason got in deeper, "Well, for example, I do not care so much for 'Piano Concerto in A Minor (a 水调钢琴协奏曲 ) ' ." Her gaze was steady, "The concerto is one of my favorites among my husband's compositions. I love it very much." Bravely, Mason complimented Paderewski's use of French impressiomsm. Now Paderewski himself spoke, "I completely refuse to accept any use of French impressionism. I do not believe in the modern French school, because it is not founded in tradition. It is very trange and unusual." At last Mason ventured to show Paderewski a movement of his new violin sonata(责 鸣曲 ).

Talking about writing styles C Dancing antelopes【羚羊） Long ago many African people did not write down their histories. They remembered things from the past by singing songs, dancing, acting, and telling stories - and by making works of art. In Mali, a group of people called the Bamana believed that long ago, a special being called Chiwara used magical powers to teach the people to farm. To remember their ancestors and to honor the powers of Chiwara, Bamana artists carved tall wooden figures shaped like antelopes, designed to be worn on top of the head. During planting and harvest festivals,young men hid their bodies under costumes, wore these tall headdresses, and performed a dance like leaping antelopes. The dance told the story of Chiwara. Bamana artists didn't try to make their sculptures look exactly like real antelopes.Instead, they suggested the shape of the antelope's body with big, thick
curves. Sculptures in clay and bronze The Yoruba people of West Africa lived in the city of Ife. From about A.D. 1000 t0 1500,artists in Ife carved beautiful sculptures. Ife sculptures are made of brass (a metal) and terra cotta (red clay baked in a hot fire).Ife sculptors made sculptures that looked like real people, with delicate features, serious expressions, and eyes that stare straight ahead. To make this brass head, the sculptor first shaped the head, using a mixture of sand and clay. He covered it with a thin layer of beeswax【蜂蜡）. Next, using a knife made of bone, he carved the details of the face into the beeswax, then covered it all with a thin layer of clay. When he put the sculpture on a hot fire, what do you think happened? The beeswax melted and flowed away, leaving a thin hollow space between two face-shaped shells of clay. Thesculptor then poured hot melted brass into the space. After the brass cooled, he broke the clay shells. What remained was this brass sculpture. 28. According to the text, ancient African people made artworks to A. decorate their homes B. celebrate festivals C. record their histories D. entertain themselves 29. How did the Bamana remember Chiwara? A. They were dressed as Chiwara. B. They made costumes in the way Chiwara had taught them. C. They passed the story of Chiwara down to each new generation. D. They danced wearing antelope headdresses. 30. The last paragraph is mainly about A. the process of making the sculptures B. the materials used to make the sculptures C. the principle of making the sculptures D. the tools used to make the sculptures 31. What do Mali and Ife sculptures have in common? A. Both of them are shaped with big, thick curves. B. Both of them are examples ofAfrican art. C. Both of them can be worn by people. D. Both of them represent real beings. D Citizen science projects are designed to get the average observer involved in the worldaround them. But what if it could help students discover new interests, narrow down theirfocus in school, and ~ perhaps most importantly - set them apart in the universitypplication process? University professors believe this is exactly what they can do. These projects ask networks of non-scientific volunteers - also known as crowdsourcing - to examine scientific questions, collect information and create databasesto help researchers make unusual and important discoveries that may be too challenging tocomplete alone. "I work a lot on endangered species - and they're very difficult to study because asyou can imagine, they're rare and you're going to come across them infrequently," says Mark Poesch, a professor at the University of Alberta's department of renewable
resources. His citizen science project, the Report-a-Fish tool, allows people to upload to hiswebsite a photograph of a fish they've seen or caught. Dr. Poesch can then use this tool to create a more extensive database about the locations of various fish species and determine a more accurate picture of their numbers. "By crowdsourcing, we can get a better sense of where these fish are in particular," he says. These projects are open to anyone, as the aim is to ';break down the model of the ivorytower," Poesch says. But students may get more out of the experience than they realize at first because it's this type of hands-on learning experience that allows these students to stand out in the competitive university application process. "We want students to come in with some kind of on-the-ground knowledge and this is one opportunity for them to gain that knowledge," Poesch says. "Once you hit university, there're lots of opportunities that come your way, but for a high school student it's better to get in early," Poesch says. "It's a very competitive atmosphere now, and so anything they could put on their application that would tell esearchers that 虫星 Y are really involved will help them." 32. What is one of Mark Poesch's difficulties in his study on endangered species? A. It is dangerous to study them. C. Scientists know very little about them B. It is difficult to find them D. Most collected data are imagined 33. The Report-a-Fish tool is aimed at A. studying the senses of fish C. collecting information about fish B. drawing better pictures of fish D. helping people catch more fishparagraph refers to 34. The underlined word "they" in the last A. university students B. researchers D. high school students C. educators . 35. High school students who have done crowdsourcing A. know more about the university application process B. tend to have more job opportunities C. are more likely to be admitted into universities D. may have more knowledge about universities
