She worked with conductors Zdeněk Bílek, Ladislav Holásek, Miloš Machek, Jan Rozehnal, Toshiyuki Shimada, and Bohdan Warchal. As a soloist or chamber artist she performed at several festivals (7th World Harp Congress in Prague, 1999; Days of Slovak Culture in Slané, Music Under the Diamond Vault in Kremnica, Music Summer at the Slanický Island of Arts, NSH, Melos-Ethos, Festival of Nice Music in Banská Štiavnica, and more). She has been a recording artist with the Slovak Radio, the Diskant label, Slovart, and Vienna Modern Masters (VMM).

"Adriana Antalová’s wide repertoire is a result of twenty years of musical collaboration in a variety of instrument combinations. As a soloist, she presented concert and solo pieces of harp literature of various styles. She dedicates special attention to contemporary Slovak and foreign music and enjoys performing works of Slovak composers, many of which she premiered."
