On page 8 of Spheres of Power, it states about magic talents:

but all characters gain two bonus magic talents the first time they gain a level in a casting class

Does that mean a Shifter 1 / Elementalist 1 gains +2 talents in total or +4 talents (in addition to what each of the classes give)?

They gain +4 talents if and only if the two casting classes Are taken as part of different traditions. In any other circumstance, you only get the two bonus talents once.

This would partially be up to your DM in how he wants to interpret the below quote which I have obtained from the traditions section under multiple traditions. Emphasis mine.

If a player or GM wishes a player to follow two traditions (similar to creating a wizard/cleric in traditional Pathfinder,) they may do so. When gaining a level in a casting class beyond their 1st, the caster may apply that casting level to a new tradition. They gain an entirely separate set of spheres, talents, caster level, spell points, drawbacks, and boons, which are determined similarly to but completely separate from the first set.

It states the talents are completely separate from the other class. This still would not technically be your first caster level so by RAW you would not gain the extra talents.

I see little harm in allowing the extra talents seeing as they would not share Caster Levels or be able to benefit each-other.
