Philipp Rüttgers Trio

Etudes of Shapes and Forms

“Imagine sitting on the ground under a blue sunless sky drinking cold water watching a David Lynch movie, then you have an impression what this music sounds like.”

The new Album “Etudes of Shapes and Forms” will be released at Zennez Records fall 2023 and profiles Philipp Rüttgers latest work as a composer and performer.
He is shaping his compositions embracing the diversity of irregular rhythms, constructed polyphony and exploring space and density in his piano trio sound.
After leading diverse instrumentations throughout his 15 year career he collaborates in his first traditional piano trio setting together with the great Sun-Mi Hong and Thomas Pol.
Together they shape the compositions blending jazz, contemporary music and improvisation together to a very personal sound.
