Maury Yeston is composer of the Broadway musical "Titanic".

The calm, clear and cold night of April 14, 1912 would bear witness to an enormous tragedy that would resonate through the ages. The sinking of the Titanic will still be talked about at the end of the next century. That's because it has passed into legend and legend is often the raw material of art. Composer and lyricist Maury Yeston explains how he translated the mythic tragedy into a musical that explores fate, fortune and human frailty.
