    Ernesto Cavallini (1807 – 1874) was an Italian clarinettist and composer.  Carnovale is the title of a manuscript by Cavallini of the same Italian folk song popularized by Paganini's variations from the early 19th century.  According to Weston, the manuscript's date of 1847/12/02 – Balogna points to a time when Cavallini was returning from a tour including Naples, Livorno, and Florence.  Her arrangement changes the scoring of clarinet from B-flat to A, and strings from quintet (2 violin/viola/cello/double bass) to quartet, omitting the double-bass part.  It's a straightfoward depiction of the 'O mamma, mamma cara!' theme in 6/8 time, with the highest pitch a written C6 and the easy key of B♭ major, but the delicate staccatos in the strings and the overall hushed dynamics lend it a simple charm.  At less than a minute duration, it makes for a pleasing encore for a clarinettist's program with string quartet.
