That is really a big question. I think that fingering determines much of phrasing. You would have to study the musical line and think about which notes group better with which. How does the line build or fall? It is a different effect to play a one-octave scale with groupings of 4-3 or 3-4. Or maybe it should be 4432121. It depends. If you can play the notes evenly first, then you can look at this. Every line builds or falls. It should never remain exactly the same. Each finger has a different quality. 4 and 1 are the last in each direction, so they have a finality to them. 2 sings well. 3 is the most resonant. 234 in sequences can be very cantabile. Enjoy.
