Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Jura Margulis recorded the present Schubert CD on a modern grand piano equipped with the built-on "sordino pedal" extension. Around the mid-19th century, this possibility of altering and extending the sound had largely disappeared from the canon of various pedal functions, but it was retained in Vienna until the early 20th century. Composers call this function "sordino" because the sound modification is related to the mutes of the string instruments.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Listening to the Wanderer Fantasie first, what struck me was the extreme contrast in dynamics from Russian pianist Margulis. The built-in impetuosity of the music is still there. The Impromptus - Op. 90:II+IV and Op. 142: IV - continue to show the marked contrast on engaging the pedal. The two Klavierstuck, Op. Posthumous, and the Musical Moment, Op. 94:II definitely demonstrate the instrument's ability to damper the sound. Pianist Margulis has the technique and musicianship to bring this all off in a positive way.
