Biography

Rosanne Philippens (Amsterdam, 1986) began to play the violin at the age of three.
Her teachers included Coosje Wijzenbeek, Vera Beths and Ulf Wallin.
In 2009 she graduated summa cum laude at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, and in 2014 she took her Master’s with the highest possible marks at the Hanns Eisler Akademie in Berlin.
Rosanne won first prizes at the Nationaal Vioolconcours (Amsterdam Concertgebouw 2009) and the Internationale Violin Wettbewerb Freiburg (2014).
She has worked with conductors including Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Michel Tabachnik and Xian Zhang, and has appeared as soloist with the Radio Philharmonic, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonic Orchestra Freiburg and the Noord Nederlands Orchestra, among others.
In the near future she will make her debut with the Barcelona Symphony under Lawrence Foster and appear with the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra, Sweden’s Dalas Sinfoniettan, The Gelders Orchestra and the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.
In chamber music Rosanne worked with such musicians as Guy Braunstein, Janine Jansen, Thorleif Thedeen, Amihai Grosz and Nicolas Altstaedt.
She is soon to give a series of recitals with the pianist Menahem Pressler, and she appears frequently at festivals in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Israel and England.
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 Francois Tourte in the possession of Vera Beths.
