Just to mention a few, Valery Gergiev can tell those pitches apart. So can most renowned conductors especially the Vienna Phil's conductor who requested that their A be tuned to 443 (can't remember his name). Bach was also renowned for his sensitivity to pitch alterations and he wrote several organ pieces for non equal temperament tuned organs.
Most excellent piano tuners can tell those frequencies apart. Speaking of which, most pianists especially the neurotic ones like Sokolov and Pollini need their instruments tuned to the highest level of pitch accuracy.
4 and 5 c is actually quite noticeable.
