As in the recent thread this is about Debussy.
as an early example of his piano works, arranged in the form of a suite, would, acording to your cherished opinion, the following do:

1) Ballade (as a Prélude)
2) Valse romantique (as a Menuet)
3) Nocturne (as a, well, nocturne)
4) Danse (as a Finale) ?

a lot of 'as', but the question seems clear, a suite from early pieces, then Suite Bergamasque, then the so called 2nd Suite B., then 'Pour le Piano', then 'Estampes', then 'Images', then the rest. I've all the preludes in the fingers, some of the etudes need some dusting off. Planning of course a series of (I think) 3 to 4 concerts devoted to 'Monsieur Croche, Anti-dilettante'. This is all with an eye on a virus-free concert-going environment, meantime practising.

I can't comment on your latest proposed suite since I don't think I've heard the middle two selections. OTOH it sounds perfectly reasonable.

Are you planning one or several all Debussy concerts? If so, my personal feeling is that idea might not work. Half a concert certainly seems fine and is done quite frequently, but I've never heard of anyone giving an all Debussy recital(which doesn't mean it's not a good idea).

Although I love most everything he wrote, I'm not sure I would like to listen to that much Debussy in one concert. Similarly for composers Ravel, Scriabin (although I know one one instance of an all Scriabin concert), Rachmaninov (although I attended a performance of all 24 Preludes), Scarlatti, and some others. I think one-composer concerts work for Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt and possibly for Schumann, Brahms, Prokofiev. I'm not sure why I don't feel Debussy wouldn't work so well. IOW just my personal opinion.
