Piano Journal Magazine 112 (Autumn 2017)
Pianist and composer Delilah Gutman composed this piece for five pianists in 2003. The Trinity College multi piano class sight-read it and found it great fun to play with its pounding semiquavers in rumba rhythm over a dotted motif. ... This short piece is ideal for group piano classes as each player has a share of the musical material, forcing everyone to listen attentively all the time in order to maintain excellent ensemble. Its only drawback is that it is so short but the improvising sections can be longer to expand this rhythmically energised piece. (Nadia Lasserson)
International Piano Magazine (May-June 2017)
Delilah Gutman's “One” for 5 Pianists and 1 piano is a fantastic, humorous, concentrated and highly exciting part-piece in minimalist contemporary idiom. Each player uses one stave and plays a restricted number of notes and figurations. The result moves and grooves with tremendous wit, energy and fun. ... One may be a slight work in terms of duration - its 134 bars are all over in less than five minutes; but it smiles and surprises the listener at every turn. Strongly recommended for multi-piano events, piano festivals, cabaret turns and festive occasions when multiple pianists gather for a special anniversary or event. (Murray Mclachlan)
