Tucked off Marina Quay West on Lake Ontario, bursting with blossoms, quiet except during concerts, the Toronto Music Garden is a place to walk the dog, play hide-and-seek with a child, cuddle with a lover, or take a few moments alone. The garden is a marvelous meld of music and landscape architecture.
In the 1990s, acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and other musicians made a six-part film inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello. For the first part of the film, Ma and landscape architect Julie Moir Messervy together interpreted the music of Bach’s Suite No. 1 in G major, BWV 1007 to design a physical garden.
