Thinking up new programs is something I usually do on my own at my desk. But for this solo album I wanted to take up a new challenge to create a programme with my audience. I had the feeling that this would provide me with new insight.

With just my violin as travelling companion, I set off through Europe for a series of solo recitals with a collection of pieces to try out. After each concert I asked the audience for feedback: how had they experienced the programme? The atmosphere, the sequence of the pieces and the length. Instead of treating my audience as passive listeners, I invited them to discuss these matters and feel involved. On my way to the next recital I thought about the reactions.

Slowly but surely the program began to form a logical entity. This is what INSIGHT is all about. The liner notes tell more about the process of making a program,  and the actual music is the final result.

What is in store for you? Not the average classical program. Don’t be surprised if a Baroque piece dating from 1676 is split into two or if the Sarabande by the twentieth-century composer Enescu is embraced by dances by Bach. Be open to new insights and enjoy!

Press reviews

Luister

(…) Bartók lijkt hen op het lijf geschreven, want ook de gevaarlijkste passages, zoals versnellingen, scherpe dissonanten en schielijke overgangen vloeien probleemloos uit hun instrumenten. Dat de opname fraai is, hoeft bij dit label niet te verbazen.

Klassieke Zaken

(…) Als je van begin tot eind luistert ervaar je een prachtige, ronde opbouw, met kop en staart. De verbindende en zeer smaakvolle improvisaties zijn van Philippens zelf. Haar transities nemen je mee van de ene naar de andere sfeer. (…)

The Strad

A bold, daring, semi-improvised programme that is intensely powerful. (…) Her sweet, mellow tone colour is perfect for this most delicate of programmes, ranging from Biber and Bach to Enescu and Ysaÿe.

NRC

(…) Muziek is een toevluchtsoord voor het mysterie in een onttoverde wereld. Rosanne Philippens toont de spirituele wil en het instinct om die betovering weer op te roepen.

Het Parool

(…) Insight is een prachtig betoog geworden, met stukken die elmkaar anvullen en versterken, waardoor het geheel in feite één lange, 53 minuten en 27 seconden durende compositie is geworden. (…) Ze speelt het allemaal bijzonder fraai, zangerig en meeslepend.

CD Choice

(…) Perhaps the most intriguing thing about this very winning disc is the enterprising programme arranged by the violinist Rosanne Philippens. It is a selection generated from the musician’s tours of Europe’s for a series of solo recitals – and Philippens welcomed audience feedback. Equally unusual here is the notion of baroque piece from 1676 set against a sarabande by the 20th-century composer Enescu and dances by Bach. The final result is a fragmentary but exhilarating programme, dispatched with immense musicianship. (…)
