In his contribution about Sgambati for the New Grove, John Waterhouse attaches a worklist supposedly by the composer himself, with a completely different numbering system than that used by Schott, Sgambati's main publisher, eliminating unused or disowned opus numbers. Library of congress has started to put them in the uniform titles, and new editions after 2001 (e.g. his symphonies) use the new numbering.
recorded at least twice I believe (if one counts a recording of a piano 4-hands reduction in a series of Sgambati's complete piano music on the Fonoteca label in 1998.)

Performed in Boston in 1894 November under Emil Paur (if not earlier.)
