Throughout the Taliesin estate, you will find evidence of Wright's love of music. He saw music and architecture as closely related, calling both "sublimated mathematics" and felt that understanding music makes one a better architect. We sampled several of Wright's favorite scores as a soundtrack for this tour, including one composed by him and his wife, Olgivanna. (“Work Song,” the background for the Tan-y-deri tour.) You can purchase a CD of these and other Wright favorites, Music, Architecture & Wright, from the Taliesin Bookstore online. There you will find a wealth of unique items related to Wright, architecture, interior design and more.
