"A sensitive poet of sound", "the pianist's way of playing may be regarded as closer to the old performance traditions of Friedman or Paderewski rather than leaning towards contemporary, very often too disciplined and unerringly standardized, concepts of performing", "the artist captivates with the way he accurately reads the lyricism comprised in music and reaches for virtuoso skills only when needed". This is how the pianist is spoken of in the Polish, German and American music press.

The recording of piano works by Julian Fontana, F. Chopin's friend and pupil as well as piano pieces by Theodor Leschetizky for Acte Préalable Label (2007, 2008) was a significant moment in Hubert Rutkowski's career. In the Chopin Year 2010, he recorded for NAXOS Label a CD "Pupils of Chopin" with piano works composed by Chopin's pupils as well as piano concertos by Chopin's pupils - Thomas D. Tellefsen and Carl Filtsch for CD Accord with Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Łukasz Borowicz. Since then, he has been giving performances in most countries in Europe, Asia, Latin American and the USA. Hubert Rutkowski performed at the Schleswig Holstein Music Festival, The "Rarities of Piano Music" Festival in Husum Castle in Germany, Polish Piano Festival in Słupsk and at the Artur Rubinstein Festival in Lodz, Poland.

He is a prize-holder of many international and national piano competitions, including the Main Prize of the Chopin Competition in Hannover (2007); distinction "Medalla per Unanimitat" at the 52nd International Maria Canals Piano Competition in Barcelona (2006); 1st prize at the National Piano Competition in Warsaw (2000); 3rd prize at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Vilnius (1999).
