"Have you seen the app called ‘The Orchestra’? It is astonishing. For somebody who can’t read music to learn how an orchestra functions, to be able to see from the perspective of a flute or a second violin, is really enlightening." - Sir John Eliot Gardiner, quoted in an interview by Richard Fairman, Financial Times, February 2014

The Philharmonia's Principal Cello's Chair is endowed in perpetuity in memory of Amaryllis Fleming (1925 – 1999) by the Amaryllis Fleming Foundation and Fleming Family and Partners Ltd.
