Lisa Streich

Composition, Coach

Lisa Streich was born in 1985 in Norra Råda, Sweden. She studied composition and organ in Berlin, Stockholm, Salzburg, Paris, and Cologne. She is currently a scholarship recipient at NMH Oslo.

Lisa Streich has received commissions from several prestigious institutions, including the Lucerne Festival, the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Swedish Radio Choir, the Ensemble intercontemporain, the Diotima Quartet, the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, and the Shizuoka Concert Hall. She has notably collaborated with Kirill Petrenko, Alan Gilbert, and Matthias Pintscher. She has also composed music for theater, notably for the Salzburg Pocket Opera Festival on the themes of the seven senses of man, as well as a closing scene for Henze's "Wundertheater" at the Bayerische Staatsoper.

Among the distinctions, she has received, are the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, the orchestra prize from the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation, the Busoni Composition Prize from the Akademie der Künste in Berlin, the Bernd Alois Zimmermann Fellowship, the Rome Prize from Villa Massimo, the Roche Young Commission at the Lucerne Festival, and the Ernst von Siemens Composition Prize. In 2020, she became the first laureate of the Claussen-Simon Composition Prize, and in 2021, she received the Lilla Christ Johnson Composition Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music. Portraits of her work were published on CD in 2018 by Wergo Zeitgenössische Musik and in 2019 by Kairos. She has held seminars on her music, notably at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Columbia University in New York, the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, and the CRR in Paris. The dialogue on music, art, and their possibilities is a subject that is particularly close to her heart.

In 2024, she serves as a composer-in-residence with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the Lucerne Festival. Her works are published by Ricordi Berlin.
