Kate Clark is a distinguished Australian/Dutch solo, chamber and orchestral flutist specialised in the performance of historical flutes from the renaissance to the romantic period. She served for many years as principle flute of Les Musiciens du Louvre and Cantus Cölln, and is currently the principal flute of The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Göttingen Handel Festspiel Orchester and a guest principal with the Orchestra of the 18th Century.  She returns regularly to Australia as a guest of The Australian Romantic and Classical Orchestra. 


Clark co-founded the romantic wind quintet Osmosis, acclaimed for its performances and recordings especially of 19th century septets and nonets for winds and strings. She also co-founded The Attaignant Consort, whose 3-CD set documenting the solo and consort repertoire of the renaissance flute won a Diapason d’Or in 2015. Her book on the performance practice and theory of the renaissance flute, co-authored with Amanda Markwick, was published by OUP in 2020.

Clark teaches historical flutes at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (since 1996) and is regularly invited as a guest teacher, examiner and adjudicator, to conservatories all over Europe.
