Not strictly a new recording, but a recording in a more economical format: members may already be aware of the excellent MDG recording of Schreker's 1924 opera Irrelohe live from the Bonn Opera House (2010)

but the 3-CD set remains pretty expensive (around 40).

It recently arrived on Amazon as a download, however, and is only 14.49. All three acts are single-track so there is no danger of gaps or blips if transferring the downloads to CD. I have the 1995 Sony recording as well, but this performance is just as good, benefitting strongly from staged presentation, and is strongly recommended:
