Ulf Eriksson Violins opened its doors in 2000, offering one of the widest and best collections of high-quality violins, violas, cellos and bows in northern Europe. As a specialist with decades of experience and a global network of partners and clients, we have provided instruments for countless players and organizations, including the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Phil, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Gothenburg Opera Orchestra, Royal Danish Orchestra, Järnåker Foundation Stockholm, Augustinus Foundation Copenhagen and many more.
Ulf has been working with violins his whole life. He started his musical career very early when, at the age of only 15, he was given a grant to study with Endre Wolf at the ‘Sveriges Radios Musikskola’ in Edsberg, Sweden. At 18, he moved to Copenhagen and studied with Milan Vitek at the Royal Danish Conservatory. Soon after his studies, he played with ‘Det Kongelige Kapel’ and ‘Tivolis Promenadeorkester’. Already long before he opened his own shop in 2000, he proved to have a talent for finding the right instruments for friends and colleagues which led him to start working as a freelance salesman. His network and inquiries quickly grew and soon it became an actual second business. Nowadays, alongside working in his own shop, Ulf plays in the first violin group of the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra and has been a member of this orchestra for the last 29 years.
