Black Orpheus is a 1959 film made in Brazil and is particularly noteworthy for the bossa nova songs in the score. This arrangement takes two of the songs by Luiz Bonfá; Manhã de Carnaval and Samba of Orpheus, and uses them as the basis for this dazzling showpiece for flute. The arrangement was featured on the RAF Massed Bands Tour 2001.
