Unfortunately, \transposition can only be used when the notes are written in « instrument » pitch, not concert pitch. BTW, it could be better named as something like \transposingInstrument, it seems.

I started by writing the code to obtain the same score as the manuscript I’m using, where the first staff is written for a viola, hence my notes are in concert pitch.

Then I added \transpose to have it printed for an oboe d’amore.
But then I can no longer proof it by ear without changing the MIDI output too, which I don’t know how to do.

I’d prefer to keep the notes unchanged, in concert pitch, instead of modifying them - hence my post.

But \transposition and \transpose may be used together.

So, of course you may very well enter your Oboe d'amore part in concert pitch. Then \transpose lets you get the correct written pitch, and \transposition takes care of keeping the generated MIDI in check.

For example, try this:

\version "2.19.82"

oboe_d_amore_concertpitch = \relative c' {
  \key e \major
  e4. 8 8 8 dis e
  fis4 fis fis r

\score {
  \new Staff \transpose a c' { \transposition a \oboe_d_amore_concertpitch }
  \layout {} \midi {}
