    What genre would you classify orchestrated music that technically isn't classical?

    Example: Most of the Final Fantasy X OST.

    What about piano arrangements? Would they fall under the same genre? Or are the considered to be of their own class?

    That's not a genre. There's lots of instrumental music, including rock, jazz, electronic, metal, and even blues. The term just means music without lyrics.


    As for OP's question, I have no clue.

    Orchestral.

    As for piano arrangements, I would have a tag of "piano" and another tag of whatever style it is (pop, classical, blues, etc). If you have to classify it as one thing just use the style.
