Being a contemporary of the likes of Strauss, Schoenberg and Mahler, Franz Schreker has been somewhat overshadowed by his German colleagues over the years. But the music, of course, remains the same. There is no question that he is a substantial talent, a late romantic artist with a penchant for lush, fully scored textures.
