- 2For example, two measures with C, A, G, B, A, G, B, and C will be connected by a long curved line placed either above or below the passage that should be played legato. You may also find the curved line over individual notes, which indicates that these notes should be slurred together.Advertisement
- 5In this piece, the notes and phrases are slurred together, and air is used instead of the tongue to help to prolong the passage. At the beginning of each phrase, a light and beautiful tenuto tonguing is used, which sustains the whole passage. You do not want to use a staccato playing or short tonguing for these passages.
