There's a big long graded list of pieces that does the rounds on the internet. Take the gradings with a pinch of salt - I have no idea whether they are supposed to relate to any particular exam board etc, and anyway everyone's strengths and weaknesse

The two I've done are the Arabesque #1 and Dr Gradus ad Parnassum. Both are late intermediate pieces, both are wonderful to learn and play. If I picked one it would probably be the arabesque.
