Under the leadership of Genghis Khan, the warriors from the Gobi Desert were some of the the most feared ever. In this work, one can picture them riding across the plains of Mongolia into China. The driving eighth notes, dissonant chords and the pounding melody paint a vivid picture of the great might of these fearsome soldiers in battle. The middle section uses the pentatonic mode to convey a calmer side to the warriors as they rest at night. The work closes with much ferocity as the warriors move mercilessly to their next battle.
