What is it? A smashing good thing from the TexasBestGrok. From the FaQ:
"The Carnival of Music is a celebration of all things musical - listening to or playing it, writing or recording it, analyzing or criticizing it. Music history, music theory, and composition are all welcome and encouraged in featured entries. I will not limit genres; classical, jazz, pop, rock, rap, country -- all are welcome here."

And to get you in the mood here's an MP3 recording of Franz Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody no 6 (known as the Carnival of Pesth). Listen here. It's performed at the piano by Maestro Sergio Calligaris. Check out his web page here
