Help Needed on my Repertoire for my Recital

What are the reasons you want to choose these particular pieces? Do you already know all of them, or do you like them, or is it something else? You have over half a year, so it seems to me you could have a wider variety of music than that which you posted.

I thought it would be daunting to answer a post such as "Please give me ideas on which pieces to play on a recital." This, I believed, would be too broad. So, I posted the options of programme as a guideline on which someone could embellish, revise, or refer to.

Please feel free to give me any other suggestions on my recitals.
