Mostly I do a slight raise. My hands don’t rise beyond the lowest pin and my left hand does major of he expression. If it’s heavy, like sarabande, I’d rather stay, or in case of a strong bass chord, play towards the column. There were occasions where the piece ended with bass octave played on one of the last few string near the column, and I’d just stretch my whole arm straight out downwards after playing. If it’s in the middle of the phrase, I’d drop or raise depending on what makes sense… I guess. If downward progression to a tonic, I probably drop after the phrase; if upwards, I’d probably raise.
