Updated travel info for Saturday's meeting at BU

(cross-posted) As most of you are aware, the public transit options for Saturday will be extremely limited. Jeannette​ called the MBTA yesterday to confirm: The green line is closed west of Kenmore Sq, so the public transportation options are the 57 bus (which goes along Comm Ave) and the 47 bus, which runs from Central Sq across the BU bridge. I am not hopeful that the situation will change, as Monday commuting is the priority for the MBTA. Please be sure to check for the most up-to-date information. Parking is available in Agganis Arena, 925 Commonwealth Ave, entrance off of Buick Street. We are supposed to get more snow, but we are planning on holding the meeting as scheduled. Any cancellations will be posted here, the Google mailing list, and the Facebook group.

AMS-NE Winter Chapter Meeting Saturday, February 21, 2015 Marshall Room, College of Fine Arts Boston University 10:00-10:35  Refreshments and Registration Morning Session 10:35   Welcome 10:40     “As Obscure and Unintelligible as the Warbling of Larks and Linnets”: Latent Agendas in C. P. E. Bach’s C-Minor Trio, Wq. 161/1 (H.579) Yonatan Bar-Yoshafat (Cornell University) ABSTRACT: Ever since its publication in 1751, C. P. E. Bach’s famous program trio (‘Sanguineus und Melancholicus’) has generated much debate. A quintessential example of eighteenth-century dialogue-in-tone, the work nonetheless received mixed reviews and Bach refrained from repeating it. It would be unfair to pass judgment on Bach’s contemporaries, however, since the work is not devoid of ambiguities. And yet, with only one notable exception (Mersmann, 1917), most modern reviewers tend to take Bach’s program at face-value, and interpret the work as an allegory
