    I do think you're jesting, but just in case, we do need to have transcriptions here.

    Yes, he's kidding. But I sort of wish it were true. Except let's wait until I'm done working on my Rachmaninov-transcribed piece, then the rule can take effect. :lol:

    This discussion is deja vu, as we've examined it before. Anyway, all of the many examples I've ever encountered have always appeared as composer followed by transcriber even when the transcriber is also famous. But there are exceptions to every rule, of course.

    Just to join in the fun. If one can only file a piece one way, it seems to me that by composer is best. Particularly in instances such as Bach, and I wouldn't be surprised if it occured some with Buxtehude, some pieces have been transcribed by more than one composer/arranger. Filing them under the original composer allows one to see that there are different versions to compare.

    True, but I don't think the conversation was about that. It was about whether transcriptions should be categorized by transcriber or by original composer (e.g., on the site).
