Rosanne Philippens *
“…der beseelte, in jedem Moment ungemein musikalische Geigenton!”
Badische Zeitung, September 2014
"A phantastic violinst: distinct, flexible and a daredevil!"
Rosanne Philippens' open and communicative style of performance won her first prizes at competitions including the Dutch National Violin Competition (Amsterdam Concertgebouw 2009) and the Freiburg International Violin Competition (2014).
Rosanne has appeared as a soloist under Yannick Nézét-Sequin, Lawrence Foster, Antony Hermus, Otto Tausk, Michel Tabachnik, with orchestras including the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonisches Orchester Stuttgart, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, and she performs regularly at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Berliner Philharmoniker and other prestigious venues.
In the 2018-19 season Rosanne will appear with the Concertgebouw Chamber, the Israel Chamber, the Sankt Gallen, the Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Netherlands Philharmonic, the Vancouver Symphony, the Residentie Orchestra, the philharmonie zuidnederland and with the Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie Konstanz, to name a few. Rosanne will be Artist in Residence in Haarlem, performing with the Italian folk music group Domo Emigrantes, play and conduct with the Camerata RCO and performing piano trio’s with Camille Thomas (cello) and Zoltán Fejérvári (piano). Of course Rosanne will go to many festivals like Pause (Málaga, Spain), Classix (Kempten, Germany) and Kaposvar (Budapest, Hungary).
Rosanne is a Channel Classics artist. All her four CD’s received international critical acclaim: "a magical world of colors" (Rhapsody, 2014), "the new reference for this beautiful concerto" (Szymanowski Violin concerto no.1 on Myth, 2015), "an absolute joy from start to finish" (Dedications, 2016) and "puts her Prokofiev Second Violin Concerto right at the top of the many recent recordings" (Prokofiev 2017).
Rosanne captures a great love for chamber music. She appears regularly with musicians such as Nicolas Altstaedt, Vilde Frang, Camille Thomas, Julien Libeer, Julien Quentin, Istvan Vardai, Víkingur Ólafsson, Guy Braunstein, Amihai Grosz, Ralph van Raat and other fine musicians all over Europe and in major halls like the Concertgebouw, the Berliner Philharmoniker, Tonhalle Zürich, Laeiszhalle Hamburg.
Rosanne started to play violin at the age of three with Anneke Schilt and later on with Coosje Wijzenbeek. She continued her studies with Vera Beths and Ulf Wallin at the Royal Conservatory in The Haag, and at the Hanns Eisler Akademie in Berlin, graduating from both with distinction.
On personal recommendation of Janine Jansen, Rosanne plays the “Barrere” Stradivarius from the Elise Mathilde Foundation, the violin that Janine Jansen used to play for fifteen years.
