Richard Rodgers, composer
Victory at Sea was composed by Richard Rodgers in 1954 for the
television production of the same name.
The New Yorker describes this music as "a seemingly endless creation,
now martial, now tremendously moving."
The symphonic sweep of Rodgers’ score captures the moods and variations of
the panoramic war at sea in all its terror and beauty and adds the elusive
emotional dimension which neither camera nor words quite convey.
Rodgers’ music is greatly enhanced by the comprehensive arrangement by
Robert Russell Bennett.
