The Toronto Music Garden is a small but peaceful on the Harbourfront.
Each section of the park was inspired by a different movement from Bach’s First Suite for Unaccompanied Cello.
Allemande: An ancient German dance is interpreted here as a Birch forest with wandering trails.
Courante: Originally an Italian and French dance form, the Courante is interpreted as a swirling path through a wildflower meadow.
Gigue: An English dance, whose jaunty, rollicking music is interpreted as a series of giant grass steps that offer views onto the harbour.
Menuett: This French dance’s formality and grace inspired the symmetry and geometry of this sections formal flower design.
