Any pieces for someone with not much experience at playing arpeggios.
Also I would like the list of suggestions to be graded, for instance, I could start with the easiest and then work my way down the list to the hardest.

What standard of piece are you looking for ? I dont think I played a piece to learn arpeggios, would it not be better to play arpeggios? I know only one which was a Grade 5 piece but it broken chords, not arpeggios, and it may be too hard for you. Please advise.

in that case, set of exercises from books are good for me too.

I´ve been playing for 1,9 years, so not much, and when it comes to arpegios, i've been practicing the basic arpeggios , for instance, C E G C E G C E G and then going backwards,
I practice them slowly.

I was thinking about prelude in c by Bach. It’s very popular and may possibly help with arpeggios.

Aside from just practicing arpeggios (which you said you're doing, though you mention only C..definitely want to go through all of them), most of the Mozart sonatas contain small sections of arpeggiated figures.
If you're up to it, you could always try Beethoven's Op 2 no 2. It's full of arpeggios and demands a very light technique, especially in the 4th movement. My teacher once told me that all the Hanon exercises together don't hold a candle to the early Beethoven sonatas when it comes to developing as a pianist (then again, he's kind of a prodigy..the first Bach piece I was given to work on was the P&F in C sharp Major...so don't take that too literally).

Your best bet is probably to just learn them all following the circle of fifths and keep tackling repertoire that you enjoy. If you play anything composed in the Classical era, you'll encounter plenty of arpeggios. Enjoy!

Heh that could be fun. I was going to say "Oceans" but the 10-1 is even worse!
