  • Prior to relocating to Portland in early 2016, I delivered the first commission of my own Concert Grand model, the ARNO® 284

  • [the Two-Eighty-Four]. 

  • With the A-284, the vocabulary of piano architecture has been re-defined and leads the instrument into the new century.

  • Three soundtracks of the A-284 under the next link 'The ARNO 284 - Listen to the A-284' are now available on this site.

  • The ARNO® 284, a straight-strung 2 m 84 (9'4") grand piano, achieves the form in which the concert piano should exist today.
  • Its organic design is based on acoustic research, craftsmanship experience and musical studies, sustained over three decades.
  • An unlikely linkage - from industry to poetry - becomes a successful example of the intricate intimacy between science and art.
  • I can now produce a versatile piano, featuring exceptional polyphonic clarity and sustain, radiating a powerful, refined and sensuous tonal color palette.
  • The A-284 embodies progress in multiple areas of piano technology, and integrates acoustructural engineering with advanced manufacturing methods.
  • From the initial aesthetic vision to the final completion of the first instrument, I dedicated myself to a fascinating ten-year process.
  • Today I am glad to write that the Raison d'Etre of this work has been fulfilled. 
  • The A-284 allows us to express our musical intentions through the interface of a light, well-balanced action with enhanced ergonomic comfort.
  • This premier piano is being enthusiastically received by international concert artists, performers, scholars and music lovers.

    Please check the soundtracks, the photo gallery and the detailed description of the A-284.
