Hi, I thought this was the best place to ask this question now that I've quit taking my piano lessons. I've been playing the piano for around 8 yrs now, and now I just play piano on my leisurely time.

Before I quit a little more than a year ago, the 2 last piece that I finished were Fantasy-impromptu La Campanella. Now, my fingers are kinda stuff, so I can only play stuff like beethoven pathetique, moonlight, and brahms capriccio. Can anyone recommend me pieces around this level? Thanks a lot.

You've finished some pretty advanced pieces. I'm not sure how well you "finished" these pieces though.

The Pathetique is not an easy sonata, but you seem to be confident in your skills. I'd suggest some Mozart sonatas or Bach P&F's.

did you finish those 2 pieces off with yur teacher or on your own?

I agree with Matt, go learn a few Mozart/Beethoven/Haydn sonatas and bach's p+f's.
