Toronto - There's beauty in the sound of a soft breeze flowing through the flowers at Toronto's Music Gardens. Inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello the gardens have been in the city for a decade.
Yo-Yo Ma, Julie Messervy and Rhombus Media Incorporated first approached the city of Boston to create a garden based on Bach's piece but that fell through. Luckily for Torontorians the gardens were brought to the city instead. Landscape architects from Toronto's Parks, Forestry and Recreation Department carefully created a wild masterpiece.
