born in Sweden in 1985, studied composition with Johannes Schöllhorn as well as organ with Margareta Hürholz at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln, with Adriana Hölszky at the Universität Mozarteum Salzburg, and with Mauro Lanza at IRCAM Paris.
She has received numerous awards, including the International Ernst von Siemens Composers’ Prize and the Roche Young Commission Prize by the Lucerne Festival. Recently, WERGO and KAIROS released portrait albums with her music. ”I am interested in everything that exists in life and everything that belongs to it: beauty, ugliness, religion, superficiality and cruelty”, says Streich about her work inspirations.
Recent and upcoming projects include her new work HÄNDEKÜSSEN for Hofkapelle Munich commissioned by the Kölner Philharmonie, and a new string quartet for Quatuor Diotima, commissioned by Shizuoka Concert Hall as well as collaborations with the Bayerische Staatsoper, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Collegium Novum Zürich and Carolin Widmann.
