Piano Slurs for Right and Left Hands

by Sean
(Canada)

When you have a slur over the right hand notes, and not over/under the left hand notes, do both hands roll off the slur, or does just the right hand roll off it and the left hand stay in regular position on the keys?

ANSWER

Hi, Sean--

In the case that you mention above, only the right hand executes the slur. The left hand plays whatever articulation is indicated by the left hand notation.
