Sylvius Leopold Weiss: Partita No.15 - Prelude, Toccata, Fuga.
(published in 1958 by Schott, transcribed from lute tablature and arranged by Deric Kennard).

The prelude is not difficult, the toccata is difficult, the fuga is very challenging.

A lot of new Tarrega pieces these days, prelude 10 and 11, Sueno (Mazurka) and Minuetto which is a hard one due to the uncomfortable barre slurs on the upper fretboard. A lot of stamina required. New Scarlatti sonata, K 34, one of the easier sonatas, but nonetheless very beautiful.

I'm working on D03 pieces, trying to improve my tone and correcting some bad fingerings I'm used to. In parallel I'm trying to work on Valsa Choro by Villa-Lobos

Learning: Campo by Abel Carlevaro
Polishing: Microestudios 1-10 by, you guessed it, Carlevaro.
Resurrecting: Scherzino and Rondo and Evocacion by the same composer.
Every time I travel for a few weeks, I feel like I lose a few months worth of work.

Sounds like you need a Soloette classical!
Not sure how timing works now for him making them, but a good travel solution.

Working on the same. Agreed about the beauty and difficulty. Big stretches and accurate placements
are killing me.

Telemann TWV 40:202
A piece doesn't sound very good, it's hard for me to remember the notes.
