Rosanne Philippens


  • Rosanne Philippens is an extraordinary communicator, with an innate musicality and an infectiously joyful yet sincere approach to music-making. Her playing is refined, exuberant and profound, and was described by the Dutch daily paper De Telegraaf as “energetic, sensitive and flawless.” She performs widely across Europe with a particular focus on twentieth century concerti and this season looks forward to making her debut in Japan.  A strong believer in breaking down barriers in classical music, she is the founder of ‘The Amsterdam Salon’, which presents high-quality concerts in Amsterdam in carefully sought-out and unusual locations in an intimate salon atmosphere.

  • Highlights of Philippens’ recent seasons have included performances with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London, with the BBC Scottish Symphony, Ulster Orchestra, Norrkoping Symphony, Barcelona Symphony Orchestra at the Palau de la Música as part of the Mozart Festival 2021, in Stuttgart and Munich with the Munich Symphony Orchestra and on tour across Germany with the SWR Konstanz. She has play/directed programmes with the Orchestre National de Lyon, Orchestre d’Auvergne and the Orchestre National d’Ile de France on a national tour including a performance at the Paris Philharmonie.  In 23/24 highlights include debuts with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and a return to the Real Filharmonia de Galicia. 

    In her native Netherlands Philippens has performed 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. Conductors with whom she has worked include Nézet-Séguin, Foster, Tausk, de Vriend, Wigglesworth, Hermus, Collon, Equilbey and Edusei. During the darkest moments of the Covid pandemic, Philippens channelled her energies into the creation of a new ensemble, the Vondel Strings, with whom she worked intensely and which led to a performance at the Concertgebouw and a recording of Haydn and Stravinsky, which was very warmly critiqued by Gramophone magazine amongst others.

    In recital and chamber music, Philippens plays regularly with artists such as Kian Soltani, István Vardai, Vilde Frang, Julien Quentin, Vikingúr Olafsson, Amihai Grosz, Camille Thomas and Zoltán Fejérvári in halls and festivals across Europe.

    Philippens records exclusively for Channel Classics and all her recordings have received glowing praise. The Strad described her Insight 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

"Philippens is at her most elegant in [Haydn’s Violin Concerto] No 1 in C with its echoes of Vivaldi, spinning out the long, unwinding melody of the central Adagio with quiet rapture, and bringing plenty of wit and buoyancy to the finale."


"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
