This thread reminded me of an assertion I've made and still hold: that had Debussy lived another decade he would have composed in pantonal or even 12-tone. (His late piano Études are way out there.)

But on the topic, I can say this: even when Schönberg was composing in 12-tone (his Serenade, Op. 24, for example) he was very much influenced by Mahler's example (in this case, the Seventh Symphony).

Would Mahler have composed pantonally? Almost certainly not; however, he would have remained a big influence on later composers like Berg (for example).
