First of all, I would like to thank my parents for their constant support throughout my studies. 


A special and warm thank you to Eric Hoeprich, my clarinet teacher.  His constant and positive support and the quality of his suggestions have greatly helped me to complete this work. 


I would also like to warmly thank Bart van Oort, my supervisor, for his availability, knowledge and support. 


Thanks to Kathryn Cok, my master circle leader.


Many thanks to Marguerite Neves for her patience and support.


Finally, a warm thank you to my friends Maud, Lucie and Méline, and to my friends of the Wind Quintet Queentet.
