Oh Franz


Of modest height and questionable posture (above) this small giant never fails to lift my soul while simultaneously often moving me to tears. 

Did you know Franz Schubert's friends affectionately/teasingly called him the little mushroom? 
Was it his small stature in combination with his large mop of hair?

Here are Franz's glasses. I love how they can be fixed at the back of the head to stay in place, which must have been handy during extra animated performances.
