See, I am learning the Prokofiev, and I am choosing the Liszt.  Thus it was only slightly off topic, or so I thought.
For us musicians, the music of Beethoven is the pillar of fire and cloud of mist which guided the Israelites through the desert.  (Roughly quoted, Franz Liszt.)

Go for the Gnomenreigen, it's an impressive piece to play, short, sweet, and there isn't a monumental difficulty in it that takes ages just to figure out.  The A minor Paganini is excellent too!

Zorgs, I've got a list

Chopin Etudes
Revolutionary
Ocean
10 4
Thirds
10 9

Mozart Sonata in A minor

Bach WTC bk 1
C sharp and F sharp major

Schubert impromptus Complete opus 90
I'm done with 2 and 3, and I'm learning 4 away from the piano, we'll see when I have time to do 1

Rachmaninoff Preludes
G minor and G sharp minor

Casella Toccata

Debussy Cathedral Engloutie, and La vent dans la plaine

And I've got a throw down between the Rach 1 Prok 3 and Chopin 1 concerti. I have yet to decide though, so we'll see. hahaha.

I think that's about all. On top of that, I try to get something easier under my fingers every day. My current pet projects are the Bach 2 part inventions, and the Chopin Mazurkas.

so this is my new list or rather new pieces that I will start learning as soon as i'm done with ARCT

Bach Italian Concerto (before P+F's)
Bach Well Tempered Clavier BK 1(at least 6 different preludes& fugues)

Beethoven Sonata in F major op.14 no.2 after which I should learn at least one or 2 more before moving on to Schubert
Schubert Sonata in a minor D.845

Schumann Abegg Variations op.1
Schumann Papllions op.2

Liszt Concert Etude Un Sospiro
Liszt Concert Etude La Leggierezza
List Concert Etude Gnomenreigen

Currently I'm learning Drei Klavierstucke number 2- Schubert about halfway through it.I am also learning  Spring Song- Mendehlssohn and i WAS learning chopin op 25 6 etude lol but i learnt my lesson and kinda gave up today.I was so angry when i missed the fingering for the thirds in the right hand on the first line and i played the thirds with 1,3 and 2,4.I knew something felt too easy about it after i heard people saying how difficult it was.I found out when i was reading a study on the etudes and a part of it said that the fingering for the right hand thirds is very important.Then i looked carefully and spotted the fingering at the beginning lol.I was about halfway through the piece at a decent speed but i give up because i don't have a 5th finger lol (that's how weak it is).So i gave up because playing with my fingering would be defeating one the purposes of the study (developing weak fingers).I though it was only about thirds at first.Oh Well :-\.Oh yeah i was stucked on op 25 9 and nocturne op 32 2 for months now lol.Not because of the difficulty but i just don't find the time to practice them (i don't have a piano at home) and the piano i practice on is old upright and the keys are very heavy and some don't even work lol.

Preparing for a competition at the end of April:

-Debussy; Suite Pour le Piano, 3 mvmts
-Bach/Busoni; Toccata/Fugue in D minor
-Moszkowski; Liebeswalzer
-Rachmaninoff; Etude Op 39 #6

...and I'm relearning the Beethoven Pathetique Sonata, because I need a classical sonata for uni. auditions, and sadly that's the only 'classical' one I know above a Grade 9 RCM level... the Grieg Sonata that I did for my arct took a long time to learn, but they won't accept it... I'm recycling competition repertoire and the Beethoven for my auditions lol.

I am learning the piano solo transcription of Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens and Mazeppa by Franz Liszt. I can play Mazeppa all the way through but there are some places I need to work more on. When I have finished those pieces I am planning on learning Chopin's etude op.25 no.11 (Winter wind). Other pieces I have already learned that I play now are the Great Gate of Kiev by Modest Mussorgsky and some pieces from the Carnival of the Animals. I have no piano teacher anymore so I just learn pieces that I love.

I think I already mentioned in another thread that I'm trying to learn all of Mozart's piano sonatas. It has been my goal for quite some time. Right now I'm working on K311 (still working on the fingering in some places in the rondo), K279, and still "polishing" the first movement of K333 (this one needs a lot of work). Occasionally I take a break from Mozart and sight-read my way slowly through some of the easier Scriabin works.

Oh, that is a tough sonata hey? I played it last year...I'd wager the middle section of the rondo is one of the most notorious passages Mozart ever wrote for the keyboard...just difficult!

In the meantime, I is learning the notes of Brahms op. 116, Mozart KV488, Liszt Paganini, and Rach 3...8)
