SUMMER CONCERTS IN LA DONAIRA ROSANNE PHILIPPENS – JULY 24th / 25th
Rosanne Philippens will perform the Verklaerte Nachtby the famous Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg with a sextet. Both concerts are designed to take you on a musical voyage during our magical summer nights. From Bach to Schoenberg, a journey from the Baroque, through the romantic and finally to the modern period.
“The sound of Rosanne Philippens, brilliantly focused and expressive … an absolute delight from start to finish,” says Elinor Cooper, editor of BBC Music Magazine.
Rosanne’s open and communicative style of performance won her first prizes at competitions such as the Dutch National Violin Competition (Amsterdam Concertgebouw 2009) and the Freiburg International Violin Competition (2014). The violinist started playing at the age of three and later studied with the famous violin pedagogue Coosje Wijzenbeek, continuing her studies with Vera Beths at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, and with Ulf Wallin in Berlin.
As a soloist, she has performed with orchestras such as the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra or the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, in addition to performing regularly at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Berliner Philharmoniker and other venues of worldwide prestige.
She also likes to perform in more relaxed settings, such as in an old Amsterdam antique shop, where she organized her concert series called “The Amsterdam Salon” with musician friends from around the world and an evening session for artists. Her expressive style not only has a place in theatres but as she says “my aim in a concert hall or in any other place where you can listen to music, is to awaken a feeling of togetherness. This is what makes music so essential: that wordless power of expression that brings people together.”
On the nights of July 24th and 25th Rosanne Philippens will be accompanied by Julia Philippens (violin), Joël Waterman (viola), Simone van der Giessen (viola), Lidy Blijdorp (cello) and Ketevan Roinishvili (cello).
