I think I might be able to keep it to 100 if I really tried, but 30?  No.  Just off the top of my head:
About 3-4 Haydn Symphonies before No. 82, then all of them from 82-104 (preferably the Sigiswald Kuijken recordings) + the Sinfonia Concertante in B Flat.
The last 6 Mozart Symphonies.
The last 7 Beethoven Symphonies.
The 8 Schubert Symphonies.
Berlioz Symphonie fantastique.
Bizet Symphony n C.
The last 3 Mendelssohn Symphonies.
The 4 Schumann Symphonies.
The 4 Brahms Symphonies.
The last 5 Dvorak Symphonies.
The last 3 Tchaikovsky Symphonies.
The Franck Symphony.
the 9 Mahler Symphonies.
The 7 Sibelius Symphonies.
Prokofiev Symphonies 1 and 4-7.
All 15 Shostakovich Symphonies.
