Søren Jensen
Søren Jensen 16.07.1865 - 1.2.1939. Manufactured pianos in Copenhagen between 1893 – 1918. He co-founded the Danish Piano Manufacturers Association in 1895, and later became its chairman from 1903 to 1911.

Early Years
He served an apprenticeship in 1879 and in 1884 travelled to Copenhagen. To further his education, in 1888 he travelled around Europe to Berlin, Dresden, Hamburg and Paris.


Dania Grand Piano

Piano Manufacturer
In 1893 he established himself as a piano manufacturer. The 5600m2 building in northern Copenhagen was built in 1905/06 to open his piano factory. From modest beginnings, employing only two men in the workshop, he built the company up to be one of the largest in Scandinavia. He participated eagerly in the exhibitions and his instruments won recognition from authorities such as J.P.E. Hartmann, August Winding and Gottfred Matthison-Hansen. He built a variety of pianos aimed at various price ranges. He constructed the very popular 'Daniaflygel', Dania grand piano, and an upright described as the 'National Piano', intended as a cheap alternative to German imports.


National Piano

Piano Design
He used artists and architects such as N.V. Dorph, Gudmund Hentze and Valdemar Andersen to decorate the instruments. He advocated decorative paintings reminiscent of those found on early harpsichords and clavichords and loved gilded decoration. He found ordinary grand pianos too furniture-like and wanted a free hand to shape and embellish an instrument. The results were certainly different from those of his peers.

Gudmund Hentze
Gudmund Hentze, June 1 1875 – May 6 1948, was a Danish symbolist and national romantic painter, graphic designer, designer, and illustrator.

Early Years
He was born in Næstved. When he was nine years old, the family moved to Copenhagen. He attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1893 to 1894 and Zahrtmanns Skole 1897-1898.

Art Work
In 1893-1894 he was part of the movement around the journal Taarnet, which advocated symbolism in art, primarily literature led by the author Johannes Jørgensen. Hentze illustrated many books, including J.P. Jacobsen's novel Fru Marie Grubbe and fairy tales by Hans.C. Andersen. His illustration resembled that of his colleague Lorenz Frølichs, but where he was inspired by German and French artists, Hentze was primarily stylistically inspired by the English prerafaelites and Aubrey Beardsley. His artworks often depict ideal naked female figures in a historical or mythological landscape.
