Dear experts in classical music,
 Who was the best conductor to record all of nine symphonies of Beethoven? According to your tastes...
 Who was the first to record all his symphonies? Toscanini and NBC Orchestra in 1930?

Your first question could start a war!  :)

I don't know about best but Toscanini is darned good. There should be some Cantelli in the archive. He was Toscanini's protege and brilliant.

Welcome to the forum. :) There is an ongoing discussion on that question, to be found here: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,21417.0.html

On the second question, I believe indeed the first complete cycles came in the 30s, another was by Felix Weingartner on EMI.

Have fun! :)
