Rosanne Philippens


  • Rosanne Philippens is an extraordinary communicator, with an innate musicality and an infectiously joyful yet sincere approach to music-making.  She is in high demand across the Netherlands where she performs regularly in the major halls and series both as soloist and chamber musician.  She is also a keen play/director and recently made her debut with the Orchestre National de Lyon leading the orchestra in a hugely successful performance of The Seasons by Vivaldi and Piazzolla in Lyon’s Auditorium receiving the highest praise from players and management.  Philippens’s playing is refined, exuberant and profound, and was described by the Dutch daily paper De Telegraaf as “energetic, sensitive and flawless.”

  • Highlights of her 20/21 season include returns to the Orchestre National de Lyon to play/direct and to the St Gallen Symphony,and debuts with the Royal Philharmonic and BBC Scottish Symphony orchestras.  Recent highlights include performances with the Rotterdam Philharmonic at De Doelen, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic in the prestigious Zaterdag Matinee series and the Residentie Orkest both in The Hague and at the Concertgebouw Hall, Amsterdam.  Elsewhere Philippens has played with the Barcelona Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Winnipeg Symphony and with orchestras across Germany, Finland and Switzerland, with conductors including Nézet-Séguin, Foster, Tausk, de Vriend, Hermus and Collon.

    In recital and chamber music, Philippens plays regularly with artists such as István Vardai, Vilde Frang, Julien Quentin, Vikingúr Olafsson, Amihai Grosz, Camille Thomas and Zoltán Fejérvári in festivals and halls across Europe.  A strong believer in breaking down barriers in classical music, she runs her own concert series ‘The Amsterdam Salon Pop-Up’, presenting high-quality concerts in carefully sought-out and unusual locations in an intimate salon atmosphere.

    Philippens records exclusively for Channel Classics and all her recordings have received glowing praise.  Her latest CD Insight represents the culmination of a very special and personal journey for Philippens; the choice of works by Bach, Enescu and Biber and the order in which they were recorded was inspired directly by the feedback gathered from audience members during a solo European tour.   The Strad has described the CD as being “both softly spoken and intensely powerful” and Philippens as a “dazzling performer”.  Earlier albums include Dedications, featuring works by Kreisler, Fauré and Ysaye, and a recording of Prokofiev’s 2nd Concerto, described by BBC Magazine as “a triumph”.

    Rosanne Philippens was taught from an early age by Anneke Schilt at the Amstelveen music school. She continued her studies at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague and the Hanns Eisler Academy in Berlin with Coosje Wijzenbeek, Vera Beths, Anner Bylsma and Ulf Wallin, receiving the highest distinction from both institutes.  Philippens won first prize at the Dutch National Violin Competition in 2009 and the Freiburg International Violin Competition in 2014.

    Philippens plays on the 1727 Barrere Stradivarius, thanks to the generous support of the Elise Mathilde Foundation.

“Energetic, sensitive and flawless playing — a dream violinist"

De Telegraaf

"Interpretative poetry and excitement"

Concerto Choice, BBC Music Magazine, January 2018

"Once again Rosanne Philippens has made a jewel of a CD...She makes the melody personal, with smalls slips between the tones and sound intensity that will not let you go."

De Volkskrant, December 2017
