Mahler was a great supporter of the Second Vienna School, being Schoenberg, Berg, Webern. My question is, if Mahler had lived longer do you believe he would have still have continued to support Arnold Schoenberg's descent into extreme chraomatism and atonality? Such as what would be his most extreme work up 1912, 'Pierrot Luniare' which was coincidently composed roughly a year after Mahler death.

I think Mahler would have surely embraced atonality for the sake of Expressionism in music Romantism, as in a type of lunacy arising from the hyper element, which dates as far back as the fiery opening to the second movement of Mahler 5th. But twelve-tone, I'm not so sure he would have embraced?
