Pianist, Composer and Singer, Italo-American, Delilah Gutman was born in Madrid, 1978. She lives and works in Milan and Rimini where, in 2007, she founded the Cultural Association D.G.M.A. for the research and production of musical and multi-media events such as “Silenzio Musica”, “DoNna” and “Kol bpm.”
She graduated in piano, electronic music and composition at the Conservatorio di Musica Giuseppe Verdi of Milan. She studied composition with Niccolò Castiglioni, Bruno Zanolini and Alessandro Solbiati, piano with Lidia Arcuri, and electronic music with Riccardo Sinigaglia. She has attended masterclasses with Gyorgy Ligeti, Gabriele Bianchi, Salvatore Sciarrino, and Luca Francesconi.
As a composer, she has to date over one hundred premières in Italy and abroad.
Among her many musical installations, readings, art exhibitions, and video art, in particular she has collaborated with the poets Manrico Murzi and Salvatore Ritrovato; writers Haim Baharier, Roberto Piumini and Guido Quarzo; and visual artists Mark Kostabi and Enzo Cucchi.
AOTOS Magazine (December 2017)
Most of the new music publications that I have received recently have been new editions, not new original compositions. However, these two sets of songs from Gutman are new, original and interesting! She contrasts a simple but melismatic line in 'La voce della luna' with a more metrical dance-like approach 'Tocca di vita' in the ‘Songs of Life’. This type of contrast recurs in the ‘Songs in the Mirror’, where there is frequent use of the augmented second interval, creating an exotic Moorish ambience. Pianistically she delights in extreme textures and registers.
