i think he's currently crossing over right now. He's actually played rock before , but that was before he made a name for himself composing and conducting. He just released a new album Dreams and Variations. He conducts the Oceana Orchestra in this album. It's got a few new twists that I believe are not conventional to the norm of classical music. In a few of the pieces, there's an electric guitar, sounds like a mix of a classical orchestra, with pink floyd (latest music- not early years). breath of fresh air in my opinion.
