How amazing it is to demonstrate such a vivid picture by Pipa merely with four strings! Ambush on All Sides tells people the whole process of the battle. The decisive battle of Gaixia was a well-known battle in Chinese history. As soon as the regime Qin Dynasty (221-206BC) was overthrown, fierce battle for the crown began between armies of Chu under Xiang Yu and Han under Liu Bang. The 300,000 Han soldiers besieged Xiang Yu's 100,000-strong army from Chu. Xiang Yu managed to break through the encirclement with 800 cavalrymen, but 5,000 Han horsemen were hot on his heels. The final decisive battle took place beside Wujiang River. Han army had laid an ambush on all sides. Xiang Yu, lord of Chu, knew that he had been utterly defeated and had to commit a suicide.

As early as the end of 16th century, there was already written record of Ambush on All Sides, elaborating the picture showed by the music. Ambush on All Sides is a treasure of ancient historical scores of China.
