Bernard and Franc;:ois Baschet are brothers. They live in Paris and work with new sounds and shapes for making music. They haven't

always done this, though; for a long time Bernard managed a factory and Franc;:ois ran a business

in Argentin;:t. Then, about 30 years ago, they took their s'aV.inc.gcs and began the work they do now. First they learnt all about how classical musical instruments were made, and then they began inventing their own instruments.

Now their lives are quite varied. They are still

inventing new instruments; but Bernard has begun working with children as well. He helps them to discover music without haVing to read written notes. He sometimes travels, too, giving concerts

on his instruments with other musicians. Franc;:ois also travels - sometimes to set up exhibitions, sometimes just for the pleasure of arriving in a new place.

Bernard's main complaint? The telephone. 'When an artist is working,' he says,

'and he has to run to the telephone, something is broken inside. I agree with the sculptor who said that freedom for the artist means having a secretary.'


 

 

Which is the most accurate summary of the text?

 

1. Bernard and Fran<;ois Baschet have spent a large part of their lives making new kinds of musical instruments.

2. The Baschet brothers both work at inventing new musical instruments and teaching children to play them.

3. Bernard and Fran<;ois Baschet have recently begun working with new musical instruments: they invent them, teach children to play them, give concerts and

set up exhibitions.
