Marie Kruttli



“Marie Kruttli was born in 1991. She started playing the piano at the age of 6. After spending years playing classical music, she discovered jazz as a genre that resonated more with her body and soul. Marie studied at the jazz music department of the University of Lausanne (HEMU) with Emil Spanyi, where she received her bachelor’s in 2012. She then completed her master’s studying with Hans Feigenwinter in Lucerne.

In 2010 Marie started her own trio to perform her original music. The trio performs actively in Europe and released its debut album “Kartapousse”. They are currently preparing their next album.

Marie recently spent 3 months in New York City, where she was immersed in the local jazz scene. She recorded an EP with notable New York musicians which was released in October 2015.
She won scholarships from the Friedlwald Foundation and from the Langnau Jazz Night piano competition .

Marie and her trio also won the ZKB Jazz Preis 2016.

Over the past few years, Marie has been playing with Gerry Hemingway,Tim Berne, Michael Abene, Matthieu Michel,

Dominik Burkhalter, Alban Darche, Dejan Terzic, Samuel Blaser and young upcoming NewYork musicians like Jonathan Barber, Devin Starks, Linda Briceno and Francesco Geminiani among many others

« Kruttli’s sublime virtuosity puts her in a league with today’s piano greats (…). But what truly distinguishes her from many of her peers is her confident and straightforward delivery of a vast array of original musical ideas. Deeply indebted to composers such as Stravinsky, Debussy and Ravel , she is at home in a wide range of dazzling melodic patterns, effortlessly mastering the most sophisticated chord changes…»
