The Toronto Music Garden
The Toronto Music Garden, created in collaboration with eminent cellist Yo-Yo Ma, is a three-acre public park on Toronto's Harbourfront whose design is inspired by the First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello by Johann Sebastian Bach. Curving paths move visitors through six garden "movements" that flow from the different moods, feelings, and forms evoked by the music.
