"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."
