Any suggestions for fun but advanced piano pieces? I'm open to anything, but classical is preferred. No chopin (I already know them). No Rachmaninoff (sounds like noise).

thanks

not quite noise, but still don't like it.

This is the kind of dry noise that I'm referring to:

To be honest, I agree somewhat. I just like the one composition I posted and some others by him, but I've never been much of a fan. My favorite piano pieces come from Debussy, Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart and Bach. I'm still investigating though. Haven't liked classical for that long but currently can't get enough of it. Any recommendations?

For Elise by beethoven is a classic piano song to learn. It's not very hard to learn, but it sounds pretty advanced when you play it.

It is the first thing you learn on piano though. I just want something that'll take a while and also be fun

This is pretty easy, I've rearranged it twice myself to make it hard:

Enjoy.

If you want it harder, I shall rewrite it for 4 hands.

You've played all of Chopin's Etudes? Those were pretty hard.
Liszt's pieces are also quite time-consuming.

It depends on how hard you want. I don't know many classical pieces, but these are a few that I play(ed) that are really fun and complicated.
The entertainer (as written by Scott Joplin because its the more complicated version)
He's a Pirate - Jarrod Radnich
The Battle - Robert Peeters
These aren't classical, but they're tons of fun to learn and play.

Beethoven's piano sonatas are very good to play. The third movement of the "Moonlight" is one I would recommend.

You know all of Chopin? Wow!

lol no, I meant that I know a few (waterfall etude, revolutionary etude, fantasie impromptu and nocturne op.9 no.2,....as well as fragments of minute waltz, black key etude, op 25 no 1, and grande valse brillante). I just need to diversify my repertoire

There's a plenty more Chopin than that... I'm sure you're capable of handling some of the more advanced Chopin repertoire since you can play the waterfall etude (mission impossible for me; I hate arpeggios).

Have you looked into any of the polonaises? The other nocturnes, waltzes? Ballades or scherzi, if you're capable? Preludes?

Of course there's a plenty more than Chopin out there: Beethoven and Mozart sonatas are a must, and there's no reason not to try out Haydn's or Schubert's if you have time. Bach works (English suites, French suites, partitas, WTC) again are a must. There's a lot more Romantic repertoire for the piano as well - look at some Brahms solos for example.
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

Oh...
Scriabin's quite good, too. I'd recommend his music.
And sorry to recommend more Chopin, but the nocturne in E flat is beautiful.
And have you tried Liszt? The Transcendental etudes should keep you occupied for a while.

If your still looking for advanced I just started one recently. Its "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, arranged by Jarrod Radnich. Not exactly classical, but just listen to it. It sounds amazing and is definitely advanced.

Here is a nice little list for pieces that actually sound better and more complex than they are. There are some classical pieces in here as well.

There are a couple of advanced piano pieces that comes to my mind. Maple Leaf Rag and Linus and Lucy. Both of these pieces have beginning, intermediate, and advanced versions. They are fun songs and almost everyone who hears them will get a kick out of them.
I learned both of these pieces at the advanced level. They were challenging but rewarding. I played them and played them, and then I played them some more. I wanted them to sound expert like. In my life as a piano player, I have noticed that there are certain musicians who play a piece in such a genius way that it sounds almost like something from the gods themselves. I wanted my music to sound like that so I played these two pieces over and over again, trying to get just the right sound.
Striptease is also a good one.

You sound extremely competent and with out being rude confident.
My self- taught efforts are quite laughable but they have helped my appreciation of piano music.
It is very difficult to be objective about piano music and I'm sure you know we cannot link greatness to complexity; however complex does equate to difficulty. Much of Vhopin is difficult but the thing about his music is almost instant appeal and lasting quality .Rachmaninoff is flamboyant but a few pieces stick in the mind such as the the prelude in C# minor and his second piano concerto. To my mind Debussy is etereal anddriffting

Depends on your ability, skill and musicianship but here a few suggestions:

Scarlatti Sonata k.141
Shostakovich Prelude and Fugue op.87 no.15
Ravel Jeux d'Eau
"Bonjour" -Feu

Diqiu: "Asian men are generally perceived as more feminine..."
Me: "Are you feminine?"
Diqiu: "Hey, no!"

"Do really really really good pens turn you on?" -Hayd
