The Italian composer and conductor Ezio Bosso has asked fans to stop begging him to play the piano as two of his fingers “no longer respond well” because of a neurodegenerative illness.

Bosso was conducting his Philharmonic Orchestra of Europe at a theatre in Foggia, in the southern Italian region of Puglia, on Saturday night when he reportedly came under pressure from the audience to play.

“If you love me, please don’t ask me to play any more,” Italian newspapers quoted him as saying during a discussion at an exhibition centre in Bari the next day.

“You do not know the suffering it causes me … I have two fingers that no longer respond well and so I can’t give as much to the music.”
