She has released 11 albums and 1 DVD together with Revalia Kammermeeskoor. Her newest album “Kuristi kohal” (2016) contains songs based on Uku Masing’s poetry.

Uku Masing’s poetry talks to me to the exact scale that I myself am ready to read between the lines, to understand. His poems resound, music seems to have been encoded into them. When you happen to hear this music then you have to sit behind a piano and make it audible. For me Uku Masing’s poetry is inexhaustible. Therefore, lately I do not see any point to offer the audience anything else than what I myself nourish my mind with, what I care to sing about. I believe that anyone who listens, senses, perceives will achieve the same state of being. Or, as someone put it, this state is called LOVE. So be it LOVE,” says Siiri Sisask who has lately performed only songs based on Uku Masing’s texts.
