Oddly, Sibley claims this is concerto no. 2... Emanuel und Henrik Moor Stiftung has a useful worklist however. Unless his D minor concerto (without opus, no. 168) predates this, this is no. 1 (of four violin concertos in all, one without opus and three with - opp. 62, 66 in E and 72 in C.)
One of those rare but not unknown concertos with four movements (scherzo in second place).
Later note: op.168 might well predate this- after all, op.167 is from 1886. the opus number merely reflects 'without opus number', not order of composition. So opus 168 might well be a very early work. going with violin concerto no.2 for now after all.
The Moór concertos for violin are apparently - op.168 in D minor (date?), op.62 published 1905 in G, op.66 in E pub. 1906, op.72 in C pub. 1908.
(Piano reduction appears in HMB in 1906:, full score in 1905: .)
