Notes and Editorial Reviews
Rosanne Philippens is considered one of Netherlands's greatest violinists. Her 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 and Stefan Asbury, with orchestras including the Philharmonisches Orchester Freiburg, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Strings and the NJO, and she performs regularly at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, De Doelen Rotterdam and other prestigious venues.
Reviews:

A significant talent whose varied tonal palette especially suits this music. She connects well with the composer's sensual muse.

– Gramophone

Philippens has a muscular, joined-up sound, which expands excitingly and can then recede smoothly in a moment. Her pianist, Julien Quentin, is just as athletic and responsive.

– Guardian (UK)

Philippens displays a brilliant tone and flawless technique in some really difficult music. This really is an outstanding CD, full of dazzling playing from a violinist with a strong musical intellect.
