AllMusic Review by

Based on The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, Walter Taieb's The Alchemist's Symphony is a provocative and intriguing work that balance ambient new age with worlbeat largely drawn from Spain, Egypt and Morocco. Not everything on the album works, but it is faithful to the spirit of the book and often spellbinding.
