 Italian Progressive music
Many groups used almost classical arrangements and worked out their ideas in such a perfectionism and with the ability to fuse the emotional and intellectual, rhythm changes, jazz and pure classical influences (from the barock until classicism area mostly) and rock at the same time.
Even barock compositions were rewritten into classical period pieces, leading into the most common opinion of what kind of music classical music brings forth.
This music had its roots in UK symphonic groups who were popular at that time in Italy, like ELP, Vander Graaf Generator, Genesis, Gentle Giant.
