On The Arabesque

“The Arabesque Piano combines the grace of the classical dancer and the intertwining motif witnessed in Moorish design — sound in movement. The physical presence of the Arabesque was a direct link to what I initially composed in my thoughts. It was a thought dream coming alive.”
— Dakota Jackson

Kin to the intimate, lyrical creation by Robert Schumann, also titled “Arabesque,” or recalling Debussy's pensive masterpiece of the same name, the 160th Anniversary Limited Edition Arabesque by Dakota Jackson touches the soul with a pure beauty. The instrument captivates with exquisite design accents, giving an impression of fluidity and movement. In ballet, an "arabesque” is a pose held suspended in time, with the limbs of the dancer impossibly extended. It conveys a sense of channeled energy, flowing freely through the tips of the fingers and toes, outward and upward into the ether.

The cooperation between Steinway & Sons and Dakota Jackson began in 2000 with the development of the highly successful Tricentennial Limited Edition for the 300th anniversary of the piano.  Now, with the 160th Anniversary Limited Edition Arabesque by Dakota Jackson, the special partnership grows still stronger.

“Steinway is synonymous with Piano. I wouldn't consider designing a piano for any other company.”
