usitas - Lat. for 'customary'. Like for young people to me more suave or just handsome/pretty.

What would playing a piano by four persons be called? Octopianism?
Not at all 'usitas'.
And the most amazing thing is it doesn't sound like so many hands, while 10 fingers on a guitar may work like a full orchestra.
Terrific program. If the guys were as fat... well, big like 'the woman of size', they wouldn't be able to squeeze the all four at the piano.

astrology ... a sort of pseudo-science loosely related to fortune-telling, and generally considered as silly nonsense by astronomers, astronauts and astrophysicists

Wouldn't four piano players be called a quartet?

Rather ashamed to say I had to look up tessellate. I thought it had something to do with strippers and tassles

eremologist - fascinated by deserts.

Four piano players on four pianos would be a quartet for sure, but the phenomenon of playing one piano with 8 hands attached to four persons?

I had forgotten 'tesselate', too .
