A phantastic violinst: distinct, flexible and a daredevil!
Janine Jansen

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 Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonisches Orchester Freiburg, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, the North Netherlands Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra and the Sinfonie Orchester Sankt Gallen, and she performs regularly at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Berliner Philharmoniker and other prestigious venues.

In the 2017-18 season Rosanne will appear with the Dutch Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in the famous Saturday Matinee Series, with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, the Sinfonie Orchester Sankt Gallen, the Joensuu Chamber Orchestra, the Orchestre International de Genève and at festivals in Iceland, France, Israel, Germany and The Netherlands.

Rosanne is a Channel Classics artist. Her first CD Rhapsody was very well received. With Xian Zhang she recorded her second CD containing the First Violin Concerto by Szymanowski. The recording was praised as the new reference for this beautiful concerto. Her third 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 is an all Prokofiev CD: the Second Violin Concerto (with Otto Tausk and the Sinfonie Orchester Sankt Gallen), the solo sonata and the Five Melodies.

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.

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.
