Notes & Reviews:
This thoroughly modern view of Die Schatzgräber is only the opera's second recording (the first was in 1989). Composed during World War I with the hope of a better future, Schreker's operas reflect the situation of the early 20th century. Although the composer enjoyed amazing success during his lifetime, he was nearly forgotten after the end of World War II.Notes & Reviews:
