He has collaborated with Aaron Shorr, Jan-Philip Schulze, and Julian Perkins, and performed with his own Kreutzer Quartet and the Ensemble Triolog.

Skærved has played Paganini's "Il Cannone" violin on five occasions, and given recitals using historical instruments from the collection of the Library of Congress. He plays a 1698 Stradivarius violin that was once owned by Joseph Joachim and is part of the collection held by the Royal Academy of Music. Two of his recordings feature historic violins by Andrea Amati and Niccolò Amati. Skærved has recorded albums for Toccata Classics, Naxos, Athene, Metier, Meridian Records, and Albedo.
