Nick van Bloss has accused British ensembles of snubbing him because he suffers from Tourette syndrome. The pianist, who has performed at Wigmore
Hall, has written to six orchestras – the Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Bournemouth Symphony and the Hallé – to ask whether it his disability that has prevented them from booking him as a soloist. See Richard Morrison, p23.
