Through scrupulous and perceptive analyses, Hopkins shows how parameters other than melody, harmony, and rhythm compensate for the weakening of tonal syntax in Mahler's music.

Closure and Mahler's Music provides a conceptual framework that can enhance understanding of the stylistic changes that took place during the first part of the twentieth century.

Robert G. Hopkins is Associate Professor of Music at Hamilton College.
