...Radif goosheh transcriptions

Reng-e(1) Hashtari[Dastgahe Shur(2), based on the Radif(3) of Mirza-Abdollah]
(1) "Reng" refers to traditional Persian dance rhythms.
(2) The Persian music is based on a modal system called the "Dastgahs" (Persian word for "mode"). There are 7 principal Dastgahs and 6 secondary modes (called the "Avaz") derived from the Dastgahs. “Shur” is perhaps the most used Dastgah.
(3) In traditional Persian music "Radif" is a collection of some 300 “frameworks” (called "Goosheh"). The Gooshehs serve as a basis for all improvised and composed traditional Persian music. For centuries the Radif was passed on to the next generation without a written documented support. Today two written versions of the Radif exist for the Santour, the Mirza-Abdollah version and the Abolhassan Saba version.
