Piano Songs to get back on track - 12 years of experience ( didnt play for almost 6)

in Piano

Hey Guys , 
I was playing classical music since I was 5 years old until age 17 and after 5 years I decided to go back and play . 
the thing is that I never practiced at home . so as I never taught theory .

I would like to receive a recommendation for pieces in medium difficulty so I could play and feel good about it and monitor my progress.

I'm looking at Pieces like Moonlight 3rd movement and Rachmaninoff -loves sorrow - liebesleid which I know are really difficult and I dont want to start them and feel like its too big on me (but after me going back to business I pretty sure I will be able to play them)

Pieces I remember how to play :

The Entertainer
Nocturne in C sharp
Yiruma - River Flows in you

Pieces in working on right now :

pretty simple

Prelude in C
yann tiersen comptine d'un autre ete l'apres midi 

I found those a little bit hard 

Nocturne in E
Moonlight sonata 1st movement

Three improvisatory pieces.

These are old pieces of mine (dating from the late 80s)  which I generally play in a semi-improvisatory manner (especially the last third or so). The sheet music is essentially a "snapshot" -- a transcription of one particular performance.  

I've been struggling a bit with notating these accurately while still making them playable. For the most part, I've erred on the side of accuracy, but I think I would have great difficulty playing these well, if I didn't compose them myself.
