Liszt Liebestraume No.3? (Although it might stretch to 5 pages from memory...) Definitely Romantic AND intensive!

Alternatively Chopin's 4th Impromptu possibly?

What are the other pieces? Grieg Wedding Day at Troldhaugen always goes down a storm.

What about the 2nd Glazunov Impromptu? It's 6 pages long but there's a fair bit of repetition throughout.

What about the Khachaturian Toccata? It's longer than 4 pages but has a lot of repetition and it's easy to memorise because it's so quick that your fingers just take care of it. And it sounds impressive too.

I recommend Liszt's consolation number 6. It's quite short, about 2 minutes, but it has a wonderful structure and is very impressive to watch being played. There is a dazzling Lisztian cadenza towards the end which I love, but isn't all that difficult to learn.
