Help identifying trumpet concerto

Hello. I have a book at school with an accompanying cd. It says in the book to listen to 3rd movement of J. Haydn's Trumpet Concerto but the corresponding track isn't that. And I don't know what trumpet concerto is this. (maybe a concertino?) Can anyone identify it please? http://picosong.com/C2is/
