In 221 BC China crowned its first emporor, Qin Shi Huangdi. Previous to his reign, there were over 200 years of wars between various states in the country. This emperor has been credited with unifying China, initiating sweeping reforms to the laws, currency and the organization of the government. He was known as the Dragon King. His ambitions saw no boundaries. Some of the massive projects he ordered were the construction of the Great Wall of China, a new palace, and an enormous tomb containing the famous Terracotta Army. This was a life-sized clay army of over 7,000 soldiers, all with unique faces and features. Also included was over 600 horses and several full-sized chariots. It was constructed to protect the First Emperor after his death. It has been estimated that over 800,000 workers contributed in the construction of this army. Upon its discovery, it has become known as the eighth wonder of the world.
This piece is big and bold, just like this new emperor! The line starting at bar 27 represents this great leader and should be played with conviction. Players must pay close attention to the stylistic indications.
