[78-L] classical piano on cylinder

I just checked my one Bondam cylinder box, and the Spinning Song on that isn't Heller, but Henry Litolff - and I think the only Litolff piano work recorded in the acoustic era (he's best known for his "Robespierre" concert overture and his "concertos symphoniques" for piano and orchestra, which have been recently recorded on Hyperion).

I'm a disc collector. I have a few cylinders but no machine to play them
on. Not an area I have put much time or energy into exploring.

So I'm wondering if there was much serious piano music recorded, or any,
on cylinder. I have never come across references to any. What I am aware
of are experimental recordings, like those by Hofmann, Albeniz, and a
few others. Nothing commercially recorded that may compare to those by
the same pioneers who made quite a few acoustical discs recordings. Like
Pachmann, Paderewski, or Cortot.

Or have I just missed them?
