Amazon doesn't allow me to provide links to websites, but if you go to Wikipedia and look up:
List of Compositions by Richard Wagner
you will find the Wagner Catalog with WWV (Wagner-Werk-Verzeichnis) numbers 1-113.

WAGNER PIANO MUSIC DISCOGRAPHY (* = in this box)

WWV2 Sonata in D Minor = Lost
WWV5 Sonata in F Minor = Lost
WWV16 Sonata in B flat (four hands) = Lost
* WWV21 Sonata in B flat (Opus 1)
* WWV22 Fantasia in F sharp Minor (Opus 3)
* WWV23a Polonaise
* WWV23b Polonaise (Opus 2) - four hands version
* WWV26 Sonata in A Major (Opus 4)
* WWV64 Albumblatt for Ernst Benedikt Kietzmann: "Song without Words"
* WWV84 Polka
* WWV85 Sonata in A flat for Matilde Wesendonck
* WWV88 Züricher Vielliebchen-Walzer
* WWV93 Elegie
* WWV94 Albumblatt for Princess M.
* WWV95 Farewell to the Black Swan
* WWV108 Albumblatt for Frau Betty Schott.

Plus three compositions without WWV numbers:
* Alternate version of the finale to Piano Sonata WWV 26
* Notenbrief für Mathilde Wesendonck
* Piano sketch of the Prelude to Act 1 of Tristan und Isolde - Very nice, the best "piano music" in this collection.

The Big Name Pianists have ignored Wagner's piano music - aside from operatic transcriptions by Liszt and others.
Four lesser-known artists have recorded "complete" editions on CD.

* Pier Paolo Vincenzi's Wagner Piano Music (under review) is as complete as anyone's.
Vincenzi's performances sound fine to me, but I haven't heard the competition.

The competition is considerably more expensive:

A very reasonably priced collection of Wagner's music for solo piano, this set is a valuable addition to the catalogue. It is much more complete and far better recorded than Martin Galling's pioneering set on Vox/Turnabout and superbly played by Pier Paoli Vincenzi on a Fazioli piano - ideal for this group of compositions.

The music gives us some fascinating glimpses of Wagner's musical thinking at various stages of his life. The early works (including two sonatas) are entertaining and well written but do not show any great originality. They are very much pieces by a young composer feeling his way through his influences (especially Weber) and beginning to find his own voice.

'Eine Sonate fur die Album von Frau M.W.' - written at the height of his infatuation with Mathilde Wesendonck - is, in contrast, a mature work. It is a very fine and moving composition which deserves to be much better known. Also of great interest is Wagner's own piano version of part of the 'Tristan' prelude and a very moving short 'Elegy in A flat' from 1859.

Pier Paolo Vincenzi is a fine pianist with a splendid technique and touch. He conjures some wonderful sounds from his Fazioli and, by treating these works with the respect they deserve, makes the best possible case for them.

A valuable issue which is highly recommended to all Wagnerians and lovers of romantic piano music.

Wagner is not exactly known for his piano compositions. Listening to this well-played complete collection is to understand why they have been largely forgotten. It is perfectly acceptable salon music but lacking any truly memorable qualities. I am delighted to have heard it but doubt that this CD will be often played.
