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, Xian Zhang, Michel Tabachnik and Stefan Asbury, with orchestras including the Philharmonisches Orchester Freiburg, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Strings, the North Netherlands Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra, and she performs regularly at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Berliner Philharmoniker and other prestigious venues.
In the 2016-17 season Rosanne will appear with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, Gelders Orchestra, at the festivals of Guy Braunstein, Jean-Guihen Queras, Rolandseck, Überkingen, Giverny, etc.
Recently Rosanne released her third CD on Channel Classics. The CD focuses on the tributes composers paid to each other. Starting point is Ysaÿe who paid tribute to Kreisler, Saint-Saens, and Fauré. From each of these composers a work is recorded as well, building an intricate, surprising and very thoughtful program. Her fourth CD will contain works by Prokofiev: the 2nd violin concerto, the solo sonata and the Five Melodies. This CD will be released at the start of the 2017-18 season.
Rosanne is also an active chamber musician, performing with section leaders of the Berliner Philharmoniker and other fine musicians all over Europe and in major halls like the Concertgebouw , the Konzerthaus Berlin and the Berliner Philharmoniker.. Recent recital and concerto invitations led Rosanne to festivals in Germany, France, England and Israel.
Rosanne commenced the 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.
Rosanne plays on the ‘Barrere’ Stradivarius (1727) made available to her by the Elise Mathilde Fonds and Coen van Beuningen. She is fortunate to have the use of a bow by François Tourte in the possession of Vera Beths.
