According to an advertisement of a recording of the above reduction (by the Tyrol museum) the reduction was made by the composer.

No.5 or 6

Under the current numbering, no.5. See here for a summary of a recent article (by Dr. Franz Gratl) concerning Rufinatscha's symphonies. Important quote from summary as to why 5, not 6, btw...

"The work formerly identified as 'Symphony No. 3 in F major - lost' never existed. Instead, it seems that the work in F major is actually a concert aria with an opening orchestral section in the same key (which was taken to be the opening of an unidentified symphony). "

Many/most of Rufinatscha's orchestral and chamber works have been recorded (some works in reduced rather than orchestral form) on a small label associated with the Tyrol Museum; additionally, there is a Chandos Records CD containing this D major symphony and an overture. - ES
