An American violinist of Russian heritage, Philippe regularly appears with major orchestras worldwide at venues ranging from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig to Carnegie Hall in New York, also making frequent guest appearances at the most prestigious festivals including those in Verbier, Aspen, Colmar and Dresden, and at the Hollywood Bowl in the USA.
Philippe’s award-winning discography of seventeen commercial releases includes a debut album on the Warner Classics label entitled Chaplin’s Smile, which features thirteen original arrangements of songs by Charlie Chaplin. The album also inspired Philippe to create Charlie Chaplin’s Smile, a multimedia show that played worldwide throughout the 2019/20 season.
Highlights of recent seasons include performances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, North Carolina Symphony, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Bochumer Symphoniker, Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa and Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of conductors such as Andrew Litton, Steven Sloane, Carlos Miguel Prieto and Rune Bergmann.
Having made his home in New York since 1991, Philippe was born in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) and studied at the Moscow Central Music School for the Gifted with Russian violinist Andre Korsakov, making his orchestral debut at the age of nine. After moving to the United States, he earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Juilliard School. His pedagogues and mentors there included Dorothy DeLay, Cho-Liang Lin, Masao Kawasaki, Isaac Stern, Itzhak Perlman, Arnold Steinhardt and Felix Galimir.
