There are several relations you can enter between works. It is sometimes difficult to choose the correct one. Here are a few hints.

It is often difficult to choose between transcription and arrangement. For anyone interested, here are links explaining with more details transcriptions and arrangements, but Musicbrainz' definition of these terms may be slightly different from wikipedia's. But this quote from wikipedia explains the difference between transcription and arrangement: "Transcription may also mean rewriting a piece of music, either solo or ensemble, for another instrument or other instruments than which it was originally intended. The Beethoven Symphonies by Franz Liszt are a good example. Transcription in this sense is sometimes called arrangement, although strictly speaking transcriptions are faithful adaptations, whereas arrangements change significant aspects of the original piece."
