Peter Šesták’s central musical activity is the performance of chamber music, though he is also active as a soloist. He has experience of playing with many ensembles (e.g. Slovak ensembles for contemporary music: VENI ensemble and the small-town chamber orchestra Požoň sentimentál); very important in his work is collaboration with ensembles devoted to early music (Musica aeterna, Musica Florea, Collegium Marianum, Česko, Orkiestra I. Rzeczpospolitej, Tragicomedia, Nenecko, Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, USA etc.). He is a member of the Slovak ensemble for early music Solamente naturali.
He is invited to lecture at master courses in authentic performance on the baroque violin (2004 - ČR, 2005 – Poland).
