I was stunned when I got a call from Adrianna telling me that Dirk had passed way. Dirk Dickten was good people. I knew Dirk for over twenty years. I met him when I was in the hi-fi business. We shared a passion for music and sound reproduction. Many an evening was passed listening to music, talking about music, music reproduction, recording techniques, sound reproduction etc. We lived on separate coats so I hadn't seen him and Adrianna often this last ten years, but I've rarely met someone I shared so many interests with. He shared my passion for, love of, and fervent belief in the power of music to bring people together like few other things can. He also shared my belief in loyalty to the people in your life. I've found this to be an increasingly rare quality in people as years go on. He had this tremendous zeal and enthusiasm for life that I so enjoyed. I'll really miss Dirk. He was one of my best friends. I wish I'd been poised enough to have known the appropriate things to say to Adrianna when she called. I was just so shocked I couldn't think clearly. He was one of those people that was always a joy to share things with.

I spent one year close to Dirk. And what an year. Living in NY, rocking and learning with a good friend as Dirk. Good meals, good drinks, good music, good vibe, one of the greatest companies one could have. I've been missing him since I left NY in the summer of 2005. But now, it's different. But as far as I know, he got a major welcome upstairs. Because, that's what a good soul as this deserve. Cheers, Dirky!

So saddened. I loved Dirk. He was so generous and kind. My deepest sympathy to all who are close to him. God be with you and comfort you. In Yeshua's (Jesus) name.
Susanne Ewaldsen/for Dirk´s mom left a message on August 16, 2012:
Ich bin so unendlich traurig, dass ich Dich verloren habe. Deine Stimme und Deine optimistische und liebe Art werden mir so sehr fehlen, aber Du wirst immer in meinem Herzen sein. Du warst ein liebender Sohn. Deiner jüngeren Schwester hast Du als erstes die Worte "Mozart" und "Anna Moffo" beigebracht und Dich bis zuletzt um sie gesorgt. Mit Adriana als Ehefrau hattest Du Dein Glück gefunden. Du hast Dein Leben von kleinauf geliebt, die Musik war Dein ständiger Begleiter. Vieles davon hast Du mit mir geteilt, auch aus der Ferne. Du wirst mir fehlen, wie soll es ohne Dich nur weitergehen. Ich weiss noch wie heute, als wir beide zusammen bei Ibach waren und Du Deine Leidenschaft für das Klavierbauen entdeckt hast. Damit entwickelte sich Dein Leben rasant und Dein grösster Wunsch, eines Tages mit Steinway zu arbeiten, erfüllte sich 1983 bis zu Deinem viel zu frühen Abschied. Möge der Herr Dich in sein himmlisches Reich aufnehmen Deine Mami

I did not get to know Dirk personally, I am a friend of his sister and mom in Germany. I really would have loved to meet such a special guy. I pray to God that he shall alleviate the pain and sorrow of Adriana, Iris & Nepi and Dirk´s Mom.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dirk, you had such an understanding of the voice of a Steinway piano and were always able to let that voice sing out through your master touch. You also had the heart and soul of such a kind and caring person that you shared with everyone you met. I was so privileged to have been your friend and to have shared a part of your life. God's pianos will now be in good hands.
