“Green Mansions” was a 1959 movie about a mysterious, jungle-dwelling bird-girl, played by Audrey Hepburn. Heitor Villa-Lobos was commissioned to write the movie’s score, but his music was only quoted in the final product. Villa-Lobos reworked his score into the piece we’re presenting here on Fiesta!, “Forest of the Amazon.”
