Notes and Editorial Reviews

Philippens and van Nieuwkerk are sensitive and very persuasive artists. Their playing is of a consistently high standard, and the well-balanced recorded sound is warm.

– International Record Review

The young Dutch violinist Rosanne Philippens is a new name to me, but if Rhapsody, her debut CD on Channel Classics is anything to go by, we’ll all be hearing a lot more of her in the future. Ravel’s Tzigane is given a straightforward but very solid performance, but the real Ravel gem here is the Violin Sonata No.2, which showcases Philippens’ big, expansive tone.
