I wouldn't consider classical music old because they're not recorded the time they were composed - I'm sure they have been permutated into their current form through various interpretations and is not originally like that - i would think Mozart's original works were rowdy noise
Well there are period instrument groups who try and replicate the sound they had back then. The technical standard of playing of orchestral and maybe even chamber groups could well be higher now I suppose.

Earliest recorded music I like would be from the 1900s. The early 1900s and 1890s stuff tends to be so distorted as to be very hard to listen to for me.
