Papa Haydn's trumpet concerto

Franz Josef Haydn affectionately known as Papa Haydn was the father of the classical symphony. He had some great ones and he had plenty of them, composing 104 great symphonies.  While that is what he is most notably known for it was by far not his only contribution to classical music. I posted earlier Hummel's trumpet concerto and now I post the second of my two favorite trumpet concertos, this one by Haydn.  I think you will really enjoy this version with classical/jazz trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis as the soloist.
Here is the third movement of the Haydn trumpet concerto in Eb major:
