'Gustavo Dudamel gegen Christian Thielemann: Philharmoniker sind rar geworden im Fernsehen. Um Neujahr aber liefern sich ARD und ZDF einen absurden Wettstreit' - from Welt Online Dec 21, crappy Google tranlsation here.

'The most dependable sources of happiness, as the Harvard psychologist Tal Ben-Shahar puts it, are those that lie at "the intersection of pleasure and meaning"' - Guardian Jan 1.
Synchronicity back in 2007 as Dudamel and Thielemann come together in this post.
