    Question Where to post about transcription questions

    I am working on a transcription of The Nutcracker Suite for a piano duet(I know it has been done before but every transcription is unique in some way) and I have come across a part of the overture where I just don't know how to translate from the orchestral score to the piano. It has to do with pizzicato in the original score. So far, I have posted about my arrangements in the Today's Composer's subforum but only when I am wanting feedback on said arrangements. I have never asked a question here related to transcription that doesn't have to do with getting feedback on my arrangements.

    Would I post about it in the Orchestral Music section since The Nutcracker Suite is originally written for an orchestra? Would I post about it in the Keyboard Instruments subforum since I am transcribing for a piano duet and I am asking about how to represent the pizzicato on the piano? Would I post about it in the Today's Composers subforum because it is my arrangement that I am asking about? I'm a bit confused.

    Posting in the Orchestral Music area would be the place for that kind of posting, since, as you say, it was originally composed for orchestra and not a keyboard instrument.

    I realize that it's tempting to post in both places but please do not as it then becomes rather confusing when there are two threads on the same subject matter, and we would most likely merge the two threads into one thread anyway.
