Quartet In the middle of the wood there gathered friendly animals. Bear, donkey, goat and monkey were old friends. “May be we can be the good musicians, let’s try, – thought the animals – we’ll have some fun and demonstrate our talent to everyone.” They decided so and went for instruments. And soon they returned happy. Bear was holding the tambourine and looked very satisfied, monkey found the Chianuri (instrument) and was examining the new thing with seriously, long-eared donkey prepared the pipe and fitted it like a great musician, and goat was sitting on the stump with Chonguri (instrument) in his hands and was waiting for his friends’ preparations. Bandmaster was monkey. And so there sounded the first chords. There was such fuss and noise that their as though music disturbed themselves. Monkey got angry: “what are you doing? Why you do not believe me? I told you that we must start playing together. That’s why we fail. When I tell you, start playing.” “Nope, that’s not reason – argued the bear like an expert – the reason is another thing. We need different way. The first must start Chianuri, then pipe must follow it, and others should play bass.” Then goat started bleating: “it is tambourine that knocks too much, it’s deafening. It prevents and misguides us, and that’s why we can’t play.” How the donkey couldn’t say anything and so it began to hee-haw wisely: “this everything is plural lies! If we want to play as quartet, we must sit in different way. Now we are sitting wrongly, and while we don’t change places, we won’t succeed!” Animals were happy, they thought that they found the reason, and now they could play as real quartet. So animals replaced, changed their places, tried to play music again, but still couldn’t do anything. Angry animals played even more terribly. Surprised animals were looking at each other, and couldn’t understand anything. It seemed that they got good instruments, were sitting on right places, they had bandmaster, but still couldn’t play. Nearby there was nightingale sitting on the tree and listening to their suffering. It had never heard such terrible sounds in its life and it hided in the leaves, somehow not to hear these voices anymore. Suddenly one of the animals accidentally noticed nightingale hiding in the leaves. Everyone was happy: “this is famous singer and so it can help us.” The animals asked for help the nightingale. “Sweet-voiced nightingale, you know how to sing and everyone praises you for this. We want to ask you, please, don’t hesitate to teach us how to sit to play music beautifully?” Nightingale answered: “I don’t know how to help you. You are wrong when you think that important thing is to find where to sit. Change your places as many times as you wish, you can start playing either together or apart, but you won’t be quartet, because none of you know how to play music. Playing the music needs some knowledge. And you, my friends, can sit however you wish, but you won’t become musicians like that.”
