17. Tolga Kashif - The Genesis Suite/Queen Symphony
Turkish-Cypriot composer Tolga Kashif made waves in the classical and rock worlds when his Queen Symphony was premiered in 2002. Taking some of the band's best-known songs and turning them into lush symphonic affairs did the trick, and Kashif repeated his success by composing his Genesis Suite, based on seven different songs by the prog rock legends.
