Lisa Streich


Norwegian Academy of Music

PLAN TP UNPLAN is the work around the book BOOK OF CHORDS that serves as documentation and reflection on several pieces I wrote between 2019 and 2024. The work touches thoughts about precariousness in music making and musical writing and the differences in chamber musical writing and orchestral writing. In the realms of these pillars there is a strong focus on expressions found in chords.

Lisa Streich is a Swedish composer. She studied composition and organ in Berlin, Stockholm, Salzburg, Paris and Cologne. 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.

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.

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.
