The international music magazine Pizzicato awarded a ‘Supersonic Pizzicato’ with the words: “Only a true musical poet, a real sound artist can play like this” and BBC Music Magazine remarked: ”Piekut hits the sweet spot between technical accuracy and off-the-cuff brillance.”

In 2021, Piekut was a prizewinner at the Kissinger KlavierOlymp; in 2020, he won the P2 Talent Prize by the Danish Broadcast Corporation. He was a recipient of a 2018 Sonning Talent Award.
