The one-act opera Flammen was given a concert performance in 1902 at a time when he already seems to have started work on Der ferne Klang. In 1908 his pantomime, based on the work of Oscar Wilde, Der Geburtstag der Infantin, was given in Vienna, bringing the composer his first significant success. There were delays, however, in completing Der ferne Klang, caused by the criticisms of his friends and natural misgivings about the subject of the work and its erotic content. In 1905, after the appearance of Richard Strauss's opera Salome, Schreker took up the opera again, writing the Nachtstück, the interlude that falls between the two scenes of Act III. This was given its first concert performance in Vienna in 1909 and the generally favourable reception given to it encouraged the composer to complete the opera, a task he accomplished in the space of four weeks. There followed various delays and disappointments before the work was finally mounted in Frankfurt-am-Main on 18th August 1912, when it won some success.
