Carnival was originally written for the harpsichord, so the approach to touch and ornamentation are of utmost important. In this case, a lighter touch is preferable. This piece is in a 3/8 time dance style, in which the first beats of every measure are emphasized. The left hand repeats the notes of the C major chord in different organizations throughout the piece. This drone effect is reminiscent of Schubert's Der Leiermann (Organ-grinder), a figure one might find at a carnival. The right hand is ornate and has a variety of articulations and rhythms.
