Music: Franz and Marla[]

Franz Sylwester was a crippled down-and-out down-timer musician who was victimized by a rival for his prestigious post as first violinist of the Cathedral of Mainz. He gradually made his way to Grantville, where he was exposed to "modern" musical knowledge from "Master Herr Professor Wendell" (the high school music teacher) and singer and musician Marla Linder. From both he learned about the breadth and depth of modern musical instruments and systematized musical theory.
