Bocconcini was not a Composer

The British may be a nation of music lovers, but they are clueless when it comes to classical composers, a survey revealed today.

So I've been doing piano for about 9 years now... And I was wondering what level I am on.
My repetoire is:

Beethoven Pathatique Sonata, 1st and 2nd movements.
Rachmaninoff Moment Musicaux No. 5
Chopin Nocturne in E flat major
Chopin Nocturne in E minor
Bach Prelude and Fugue in C minor
Chopin Raindrop Prelude
Chopin Nocturne in C sharp minor
Beethoven Moonlight Sonata, All movements
Debussy Clair de Lune

I think these are some best pieces I've played so far. Any Idea what level I may be at? And also, and suggestionsfor pieces I should play?

Well, then I have to be the one to tell you:
It's not What you play, but How you play it. We had a member here who played all those super difficult works, but missed like 90% of the notes in 1/6 of the tempo.

Record yourself and post it, or we can't answer...

Broken strings and missing keys have made an appearance on the art scene as part of the Piano As Art Exhibition. A collaboration of two talented artists, Penny Putnam and Shauna Holiman, the exhibition features art created from bits and pieces of pianos that were too old for use or were in total disrepair.

Oh ok, I understand. I'll try to record myself playing one of them today.
