Biography

Rosanne Philippens is considered one of the greatest violinists in the Netherlands. Her 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 and Stefan Asbury, with orchestras including the Philharmonisches Orchester Freiburg, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Strings and the NJO, and she performs regularly at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, De Doelen Rotterdam and other prestigious venues.

In her determination to stretch her musical boundaries, besides the large classical repertoire she has built up over the years she also explores bluegrass, gypsy and other musical worlds. At a New Year’s Concert of the BankGiro Lottery at the Concertgebouw in 2015, for example, she not only performed her own classical piece but enjoyed playing duets with the well-known Dutch singers Ilse de Lange and Trijntje Oosterhuis.

Rosanne is also an active chamber musician, leading the Allegra Quartet for many years and now playing with section leaders of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Recent invitations include appearances at 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 at both with distinction.

Until February 2015, Rosanne played a violin made by Bergonzi in 1741, on loan from the Dutch National Musical Instrument Foundation. It was played for many years by Herman Krebbers. At present she plays on the gorgeous Barrere Stradivarius for one year (until March 2016), on loan from the Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds. This violin was played by Janine Jansen for the last 15 years.
