Hello Guys,

I was wondering if you guys would be able to help me with suggesting some pieces that I should learn. in terms of some approximation of where I am at, ill list some of the pieces I know;
Form of writing, opus number (piece within opus). Eg opus 6 (1) is opus 6 no 1.

Chopin
 Mazurkas
- Opus 6 (1,2,3),
- Opus 7 (1,2,3,5),
- Opus 17 (1,2,4)
- Opus 24 (1,2)
- Opus 34 (1,3,4)
- Opus 67 (2,4)
- Opus 68 (2,3,4)

 Etudes
- Opus 25 (10)

 Nocturnes
- Opus 9 (2)
- Opus 15 (3)
- Opus 72 (1)

 Preludes
- Opus 28 (1,2,3,4,6,7,13,15,20)

Debussy
- Valse Romantique

Mozart
- Sonata 2, (1)
- Sonata 4 (1,2)
- Sonata 13, (2,3)
- Sonata 16, (1,2,3)

Regarding that, I was wondering if there was any recommended pieces that I should learn, and/or suggestions that you may like that are around my level. (hopefully a bit of variation, though would prefer to stay between baroque-romantic era)

Many Thanks
- Chris

Since you have played so many pieces written in the 18th and 19th century why not play some ravel? Jeux d'eau and Sonatine are both beautiful pieces, and pretty appropiate pieces for your "skill level". (Jeux d'eau might be a bit challenging but you should be able to do it) They are both very helpful for developing touch and Jeux d'eau is very good for dynamics as well!

op1 is one of my absolute favs for Liszt, they almost sound like Schubert at times

I didn't see any Bach on your list. I'd get on to that right away! Plenty to choose from and most of it is great (great music and great for your pianistic development).
