Hello! I am an intermediate pianist who is looking for a new piece to learn. My current most difficult piece is Rachmaninoff C# Minor prelude, and I'm looking for something a bit calmer. I do want to push myself to become better, so any recommendations are welcome. I am a fan of late romantic and 20th century classical. Thanks for reading!

You could try the next piece in the set, the Melodie in E Major (Op. 3 No. 3).
Schubert sonatas are amazing and I want to learn all of them eventually! My favorites are D 960, D 959, D 840, D 568, and D 894.

You could do a Brahms intermezzo or chopin funeral march. But they both take a lot of musical maturity, which, if you have, then great, but if your don't have then not so great

You could have a look at Janacek's "On an Overgrown Path." It has 10 short movements, not too difficult but harmonically and emotionally interesting.

Debussy Reverie is a beautiful, calm piece that hopefully is not too difficult.  Clair de Lune is another good choice.
