Description:

Der Erzähler entdeckt den hoffnungslos unbegabten Spielmann des Titels bei einem Volksfest und erbittet sich dessen Lebensgeschichte. Eine sanft dahintreibende Erzählung von einem ehrgeizigen Vater, unredlichen Brüdern, einer liebenswerten, aber unattraktiven Nachbarstochter, einer unerwarteten Erbschaft und einem betrügerischen Geschäftspartner findet ein unerwartetes Ende beim Donauhochwasser von 1830.

A gentle, nervous and ungainly youngster fails to live up to his father's ambition and is unceremoniously ejected from the family. His passion for music is comically torpedoed by a complete lack of talent, and a subtle, tentative relationship with a neighbour's daughter comes to grief when he becomes the victim of fraud. The story ends with an unexpected twist following the Danube floods of 1830. [Suggest a different description.]
