Yeston won the Tony Award in 1982 for the Best Original Score of Nine and again in 1997 for the Best Original Score of Titanic. He was also Tony-nominated for Grand Hotel. He penned the music for Off-Broadway's Death Takes a Holiday as well as the song cycle December Songs.
Titanic was recently staged at Avery Fisher Hall, reuniting much of the original Broadway cast. A revival of the lavishly scored musical will return to New York this fall.
