Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Norway
I have known the Danish luthier and string instrument dealer Jens Stenz for the past ten years, both through his beautiful restoration work on my cello and his professional evaluation of the insurance values of all the string instruments played by the musicians of the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra. I have always greatly admired his honest and knowledgeable work in these different areas.”

When I was getting a certificate of authenticity from Englands top expert recently, I mentioned that I also needed updated insurance appraisals for my other instruments. The first name suggested was Jens Stenz. Fortunately, he
had already been engaged by our orchestra, the Bergen Philharmonic, for that purpose. I can gladly recommend his expertise.”
I first met Jens Stenz as he opened up his shop in Aarhus in 1986. I know him as a very skilled violin maker. As a result of our many conversations I can confirm that he has a deep knowledge of the tradition of violin - making supported by an extreme memory of stylistic details of the individual makers. As he is also a person of high moral standards, I highly recommend him as an expert for valuation of stringed instruments.

What is particularly characteristic of Jens Stenz is his deep love and contagious enthusiasm for his profession. He is thorough with his work and has a large network of the most competent colleagues worldwide. Jens Stenz is a highly trustworthy person, extremely talented and in my opinion one of the most experienced instrument appraisers in his field. Without hesitation I would recommend his expertise to anyone in need of instrument valuations.
