I’m in the kitchen washing up and watching Twyla Tharp‘s staggeringly beautiful In The Upper Room on BBC4 ??a piece from 1986 with a score by Philip Glass (They’re having a dance season on BBC4). Although I think Tharp is supposed to be a bit uncool these days, even on the little portable in the kitchen the piece is breathtaking. Now ? at last ? I think I finally understand what Philip Glass‘ music is for.
