Frederik Øland

Violinist Frederik Øland was educated by Serguei Azizian at The Royal Danish Music Academy in Copenhagen and Ulf Wallin at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin. In 2009, at the age of 23, he won the position as concert master at Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, and was employed as a teacher of violin and chamber music at The Royal Danish Academy of Music. Frederik Øland has been awarded various Danish prizes such as grants from Jacob Gade Foundation, Victor Borge Foundation and Léonie Sonning Foundation. He is violinist for the award-winning Danish String Quartet, most recently elected as Ensemble of the Year 2020 by Musical America. The quartet tours all over the world and in 2020 completed a concert cycle with all Beethoven's string quartets in Lincoln Center, New York. Their CD series ‘Prism’ was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2019. In 2017, Frederik Øland resigned his position at Copenhagen Phil to focus on working in the Danish String Quartet. However, he continues to assist in several of the Danish orchestras when time allows. The Danish String Quartet is the organizers of both the DSQ Festival and the concert series ‘Series of Four’, both in administrative roles and as artistic directors.
