(May have heard of Rathaus myself, I think, when reading the library catalog at the university near where I am now, and noticing they had some LPs of his string quartets; but wouldn't claim for a moment that his was among the better-known names even among us Classical Fan[atic]s.
As to Schreker, besides that Prelude to a Drama and a (fragmentary, according to Grote??) Symphony in A minor from his years studying with Robert Fuchs, he seems (... I gather?) to have written almost no orchestral music not for the stage, and the former derives from it. (An observation only; I know I still plan to explore further, and appreciate the insights.)
I believe Mr. Misha Horenstein has placed some of these recordings (in lower-quality audio, etc.) for perusal on YouTube, by the way.
