Chopin F.Nocturne in Eb major Op 9 No 2It is already a grade 8
Chopin F.Nocturne in Eb major Op 9 No 2Suggested grade8
Chopin F.Ballade No 1 in G minor Op 23Suggested grade8
Chopin F.Fantaisie-Impromptu in C# minor Op 66in my opinion, having played this song myself, the speed at which this song is played is not that fast but the delicate touch is very hard to do. Definitely 9.9
Chopin F.Ballade No 1 in G minor Op 23It is already a grade 10.
Ravel M.Pavane pour une infante defunte [Pavane for a dead princess] in G majorDefinitely not a 5 as the dynamics is far to much for a 5 rating. It doesn't seem like a 9 though.8
Mozart W.Sonata in C major K 545 - mvt 1 AllegroDefinitely not 6. While it may seem fast, it just playing the c major scale up and down.5
Mozart W.Sonata in C major K 545 - mvt 1 Allegroit is already a 6.

Rachmaninoff S.Prelude in G minor No 5 from 10 preludes Op 23Not quite 10. The pianist in the video plays it abnormally fast. Definitely 9 even at the speed played.9

Chopin F.Grand Valse Brilliante in Eb major Op 18Suggested grade9
Chopin F.Ballade No 1 in G minor Op 23Suggested grade10
Benjamin A.Silent and Soft and Slow Descends the Snow from Fantasies 2Suggested grade7
Rachmaninoff S.Moment Musical - op 16 no 2 Eb minorVery close to 10 but just doesn't come close to the sheer speed, dynamics, and stretching of the 4th musical moment. It doesn't grind your hands as much.9
Rachmaninoff S.Prelude in G major No 5 from 13 preludes Op 32Having played this myself, its hard sure, but I don't think it quite reaches the mark of 10.9
Reinecke C.Elegy - mvt 2 from Clavier-Serenade Op 183 No 2Suggested grade2

Rachmaninoff S.Polichinelle in F# minor No 4 from Morceaux de fantaisie Op 3This is a very difficult piece. I have played it myself, it is the hardest of Rachmaninoff's fantasie pieces. Not at all an easy piece. Should be a 10.10
