Actually, talking asbout steering ... reminds me of a tangential
fact, that most professional musicians are more interested in talking
about stocks and shares than about music. Somewhere I read that when
Karajan and Edward Heath had dinner together, Heath (an amateur
musician, erstwhile Prime Minister of the UK, and accomplished
yachtsman) was wanting to talk about music, and Karajan kept steering
the conversation back to yachts and sailing.
