Unusual, yes. But not impossible. You won't easily find, say, a piano concerto
in A flat minor, though I wouldn't be surprised if the monster existed. Seven
flats are really no fun to work with. On the other hand, it occurs frequently
within certain contexts, especially in the case of down-modulating.
As you can see, I'm back from my vacation, exchanging warm and pleasant Greece
for this cold and wet country. My first post is, of course, extreeeeemely
Have I missed something important/particularly interesting?
