The Bernstein—Mahler cycle usually refers to two separate audio recordings of the symphonies of composer Gustav Mahleras performed by conductor Leonard Bernstein in the s and s respectively. Bernstein's first Mahler cycle was the first of now many complete Mahler cycles with symphonies recorded between and on the CBS now Sony label. Although they were not the first recordings of the individual symphonies, Bernstein's advocacy was an important part of the Mahler boom of the s especially in the US and helped increase the popularity of the less commonly played symphonies like the thirdsixthand seventh.
