Notes and Editorial Reviews

In January, 2012 Alex Tassel began the recording of a unique and original work that took place in Mexico. The purpose was to reproduce, through music, eight movements of all the stages of an ocean race. Alex Tassel composed the symphony, and it was arranged and orchestrated by Guy Barker for his quintet and orchestra. The work was inspired by meetings and conversations he has had with great skippers to celebrate the French"Solidaire du Chocolat", a famous race following the road of chocolate.
