Monday, September 22, 2008 When Wall Street sneezes, culture gets a cold When Wall Street sneezes, culture gets a cold: "If music can calm the savage breast, Emanuel Ax may have been just what the doctor ordered. Around noon last Wednesday, in a 10th floor aerie above West 65th Street overlooking the sprawling campus of Lincoln Center, about 100 guests nibbled on dainty sandwiches and sipped white wine while listening to Ax perform a Schubert Impromptu and Liszt's Petrarch Sonnet.

But it was hard to stay focused on the music with so many people nervously checking their BlackBerrys for updates on Wall Street's hellish week of manic-depression."
