Britta Virves is a pianist and composer born in Saaremaa, Estonia, and now based in Stockholm. Well known for her collaborations with Grammy-nominated artists Joakim Milder and the Norrbotten Big Band, Britta is regarded as one of the most promising young pianists in Swedish jazz. Her debut album Juniper features piano compositions which are narratively clear and harmonically modern meditations on the people and places she calls home.

“When I hear Britta play, I hear a connected soul who’s able to communicate through the touch and sound of the piano. Her trio is in sync with this sensitivity and together, they create a highly dynamic and satisfying listening experience” - Kurt Rosenwinkel.
“Carefully and patiently created stories that rarely follow the expected path. You simply cannot stop listening.” – Joakim Milder
