Thank you, Mike.
What all these critics seem to miss is the Mahleer prenets his discourse by
using the musical equivilent of "but," the harmonic resolution delayed over
the barline by a long appgiatura, keeping the music at a continual tension,
at least to these ears. The finale of the Third Symphony is a clear example
but it is a rhetorical technique he used throughout his mature works.
