02:52 pm - violin or viola exercises in A-flat minor?
Hi - I'm working with a pianist/composer who has just told me that the key in which she wants to write her new piece (for piano with strings) is A-flat minor! I explained to her that it was not a common key to inflict on string players, but that I'd do my best.

So wanting to get a leg up, I'm scanning through my collection of various study/exercise books looking for exercises (besides straight scale/arpeggio) in that key (or G# minor). As of yet I've not turned up any, so figured I'd ask if anyone here can think of a source?

If I don't find any pre-written, I suppose I could transpose some...
