From Perotin to Prokofiev (and beyond), performed by Caruso to Khatia, it's all here.

RE: Do you judge hi-rez classical music actually sounds better than 44/16?

My take (based on a plethora of stupidity and lack of logic) is that the production values embedded in a particular release (mic selection and placement, mixing decisions, the quality of the source master, etc.) will govern my judgment of the has-it-or-doesn't of a given recorded performance.

I've run into more than one instance where the 16/44 incarnation exhibits more apparent high-frequency content that the DSD128 or 24/96 or 24/192 iteration. Same with bass quality and slam. And that, I assume, reflects the quality and/or provenance of the "master" used to produce the release.
