Awards:

Dutch Trust Carnegie Award Huygens Scholarship Program VSB fund
Jazzism, December 2010 “Wampum is impressive. The music can start out dreamy to be pursued by heavy, exciting, challenging and emotional music, guided by associative thoughts.” Volkskrant, June 2010 “The debut album of Diederik Rijpstra (27), studying in New York, is surprising. Not only because of his storytelling, etherical and brave playing, but mostly the unhindered and developing compositions are intriguing.“ NRC Next, July 2010 “Rijpstra’s debut shows more compositional talent than before. His music is intriguing.” Parool, June 2010 “A young and exciting trumpetplayer. Diederik Rijpstra is in the middle of the age of discretion, what an individual sound he has, both in his playing and in his compositions.” Elsevier, June 2010 “The creativity is intensely present; traditional and modern sounds blend together. Wampum is a jewel. “
