I use these terms also, when I speak for classical music. Elite / Elitism (the way I use it at least) has nothing to do with greatness, fame etc but with the perfection to certain aspects of the performances an artist gave due his carrier. Also his / her repertoire is of importance. Elite performer is Francesco Nicolosi for example. He is performing and occupying his self only with Thalberg to perfection. He isn't widely well known. Andre Hegedüs (Liszt) is also a kind of elite performer (with his wife) Other than this I find no use of this term into classical music.
