Anatoliy Olshanskiy is an extraordinary musician and indeed a visionary. With the help and support of his teacher and personal friend, Vladimir Ustinov he created GRAN, the new acoustic instrument with a vast sonorous palette.
This hybrid changed his life completely; she made him cross the ocean and back, introduced him to Sir Paul McCartney and incredibly gifted luthiers around the world, has brought him together with a princess and settled him in Vienna.
