Welcome to the website of flautist Melissa Doecke

"Melissa Doecke was fully in touch with French sensibility - l'esprit gaulois - epitomised by Poulenc, shaping her line with elegance and restrained emotion. Mark Isaacs' alter ego as a jazz pianist let him to an interesting approach to the piano part, with some spiky accents and strong rhythmic underpinning. This was a fresh engaging performance"
