Notable successes in Europe include his recital on the opening night of the Heilbronn International Piano Forum, a recital which was enthusiastically reviewed in papers and journals in Germany and Italy, and his 1994 recital in the International Masters of the Keyboard series in Bruges, Belgium. One of the few British pianists ever to be invited to perform in this major European piano recital series, his performances of Bach's Goldberg Variations and Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Sonata were rapturously received with a prolonged standing ovation.

In 1998 he gave the world première of the Piano Concerto by the Scottish composer Rory Boyle, with the Liepaja Symphony Orchestra in Liepaja, Latvia, and in 2001 gave the première in the countries of the former Soviet Union of the Piano Concerto (1930) by the English Romantic composer John Ireland (1879-1962) with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of the Republic of Kazakhstan and their Russian conductor Tolepbergen Abdrashev, in the Philharmonic Hall, Almaty. In June 2003 Peter Seivewright gave the Celebrity Bach recital at the International Bach Academy in Boston, MA, USA.

In October 2006, Peter Seivewright will perform in India for the first time, performing the J.S.
