The River Kwai March was composed by Malcolm Arnold for the 1957 film, The Bridge On The River Kwai. It is a counterpoint melody to the well-known theme tune of the film, the Colonel Bogey March, which was written earlier by the British Army Bandmaster Kenneth J Aldford. It has been arranged here for solo Piano.
