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"

Ulpirra Sonatines: Australian and French Flute Music
Melissa Doecke - Flute
Mark Isaacs - Piano

Melissa Doecke and Mark Isaacs present an inspiring program of Australian and French music for flute and piano in their new CD collaboration Ulpirra Sonatines. This album features premiere recordings of Isaacs' own Sonatine and The River (commissioned by Melissa Doecke), alongside works by Ross Edwards including Nura and Ulpirra. Sublime French classics by Poulenc and Dutilleux conclude the album. 

Melissa Doecke is one of Australia's most exciting flautists, with a busy career of performances across the entire repertoire for flute. Hailed as "a splendid musical mind" by the Los Angeles Times, Mark Isaacs has achieved widespread recognition as a pianist and composer working in both classical music and jazz.
