Notes & Reviews:
Rosanne Philippens is considered one of the greatest violinists in the Netherlands. Her open and communicative style of performance won her first prize at the 2014 Freiburg International Violin Competition. On Dedications, her second Channel Classics recording, she partners once more with pianist Julien Quentin in a program of works by Fauré, Chausson, Kreisler, Saint-Saëns & Ysaÿe. Philippens's love of Ysaÿe's Poème élégiaque, a piece dedicated to Gabriël Fauré, inspired her to create a program of music by composers who respected and honored each other. She performs on the "Barrere" Stradivarius (1727) from the Elise Mathilde Foundation.
