violin concert.

We would like to invite you to a "pop up" violin concert by Rosanne Philippens on  "Good Friday" April 19 at 8:00 at the Van Bosse residence: 
1210 Wyngate Road
Wynnewood PA

Rosanne Philippens is visiting the US and was interested in meeting and performing for local Dutch communities. We are not selling tickets but will be passing the hat afterwards. 

Please bring something to drink and maybe a small food item.

We have a limited amount of seats, please RSVP: [email protected] com. Feel free to bring a friend.

Below you will find more information about Rosanne.


"Energetic, sensitive and flawless playing - a dream violinist" Dutch daily De Telegraaf Approaching music with the highest possible sincerity is the credo of Rosanne Philippens, 

capturing audiences throughout the world with her infectious joy of making music. 

Coming into the picture by winning first prizes at the National Violin Competition and the Internationale Violinwettbewerb Freiburg, Rosanne nowadays travels the world as a soloist and appears with the Barcelona Symphony, the Ulster Orchestra, Canadian orchestras as the Vancouver Symhony and the Winnipeg Orchestra, most Dutch orchestras as the Rotterdam Philharmonic, and orchestras in Germany, Finland and Switzerland. 

Besides honourable collaborations with conductors such as Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Lawrence Foster and Jan-Willem de Vriend Rosanne has a passion for the play/conduct mode, leading chamber orchestras from the 'soloist-spot'. She performed in this way with the Camerata RCO and the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, among others. 

Very important for Rosanne is her own personal concertserie <The Amsterdam Salon Pop- Up>: concerts with high-quality accessable programs in a cosy salon-atmosphere, popping up in unexpected places. 

She is also a devoted chamber musician. Her collaborations include the stars of her generation such as István Vardai, Vilde Frang, Lawrence Power and Vikingúr Olafsson. 

Rosanne records exclusively for the label Channel Classics. BBC Magazine rated her last Prokofiev CD with a double five-star review accompanied by the statement: "Rosanne Philippens' concerto is a triumph". Her album "Dedications" got a five-star review in Dutch daily "De Volkskrant " and pointed out to be hearing "a violinist with a huge character". 


Her newest album INSIGHT (release date April 2019) is quite out of the box: a solo cd combining works of Bach, Enescu and Biber, recorded after a tour through Europe in which the feedback of the public played a crucial role. 

Rosanne Philippens started playing with three years old at the music school of Amstelveen with Anneke Schilt and studied with by Coosje Wijzenbeek, Vera Beths, Anner Bylsma and Ulf Wallin. She studied at the Royal Conservatory at The Hague and the Hanns Eisler Academy at Berlin. She graduated both with the highest distinction.

Rosanne is very thankful to be playing the "Barrere" Stradivarius from 1727, kindly lend to her by the Elise Mathilde Foundation. 

I am used to creating my performance programs in solitude. For this solo album INSIGHT I wanted to take on a new challenge: to form a program together with my public. Discovering some new insight for the both of us. 

So I took my violin and started a journey with concerts throughout Europe, trying out a collection of pieces. After each concert I asked the audience for feedback: which piece should I leave out or add? What was your general feeling of the atmosphere? Instead of considering my audience as a passive listener, I invited them to participate and feel involved. 

On the way to the next concert I overthought the reactions. Slowly during the tour, the program started to make sense. 

This is what INSIGHT is about. The booklet gives you insight in the process of making a program, the music itself is the final result. 

To be expected: this is not your regular classical program. Don't be surprised if a baroque piece from 1676 is cut in two or if the Sarabande of the 20th century composer Enescu is embraced by dances of Bach. 

Be open to new insights and enjoy!
