CBSE Class 10 English Question Paper 2022 Set 2 Solved

SECTION A – READING 
 
1. Read the following passage carefully. 
 
1 The composer came of a musical family; for his grandfather was Kapeilmeister, and his father, a tenor singer, filled a small musical post at Cologne. He was born at Bonn in December 1770. His father had become a confirmed toper, and the boy suffered in consequence. The father had heard of the prodigy Mozart, and the money he had brought his parents; and he conceived the notion of exploiting his own son in the same way. Thus he kept him slaving at the piano, and thrashed him when he did not practice long enough. There are stories of the sot coming home late and dragging the little fellow out of bed to go to the keyboard. This degraded specimen ended his life by his own hand, but not before his conduct had cast a gloom over his son‟s youth which greatly affected his after years.
 
2 Beethoven seems to have had no regular course of instruction in Bonn, but when he was seventeen he went to Vienna and had some lessons from Mozart. Later on, he had lessons from Haydn; but the two did not get on well together, their natures being totally different. Beethoven finally left Bonn when he was twenty-two, and settled in Vienna, where he gradually made a name for himself. He began to appear in public as a player and in 1796 played before the King in Berlin; but he soon gave up playing for composing.
 
3 His first works were roundly abused by the critics—even some that we now regard as among his greatest creations. Weber said of the Seventh Symphony that its composer was “quite ripe for the madhouse”. Then, when deafness came upon him—the tragedy of his life—the sapient fellows found that the “horrors of sound” in his works were due to the fact that he could not hear them himself. When “Fidelio” was first performed, it was said that never before had anything so incoherent, coarse, wild, and ear-splitting been heard! Of course, the deafness had nothing to do with it. Beethoven, like all really great composers, was simply before his time.
 
4 But the deafness had a great deal to do with Beethoven himself. It turned him into a wretched misanthrope, and well- nigh caused him to end his life. In the theatre he had to lay his ears close to the orchestra in order to understand the actors, and the higher notes of the instruments and voices he could not hear when only a little distance away. We need not dwell on it. From the time of his deafness onwards, he was constantly adding to the world‟s stores of the best in music. When he realized that his end was near, he said to those around him: “Clap hands, friends; the play is over.” And so, on the 26th of March, 1827, this great master of tone went out to the darkness of the Silent Land.
 
Attempt any eight of the following questions on the basis of the passage you have read.
 
a) Why did Beethoven‟s father mistreat him?
 
b) How did he suffer at the hands of his own father? Give an example?
 
c) How did Beethoven make a name for himself?
 
d) What was the response to “Fidelio”?
 
e) Why was Beethoven not accepted by the critics in his time?
 
f) What effect did Beethoven‟s deafness have on him?
 
g) What inconveniences did he face due to his deafness?
 
h) Find word from para 3 which means the same as „rough‟.
 
i) Beethoven later preferred composing to ______________ .
