"In this middle period Schreker’s works have an undeniable element of Wagnerian harmony and dramaturgy. This is particularly true of Der Schatzgräber, his most popular opera, in which he achieved a balance of harmonic languages resembling that achieved by Strauss in Der Rosenkavalier." Christopher Hailey in Grove Music Online.
