He is also laureate of the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition (Bolzano, Italy, 1986, 1994) et du International Music Competition of Japan (Tokyo, 1989).

Huillet started composing very late. Nevertheless, his work, very lyrical, already contains more than a hundred opus among which concertos (for violin, violin and viola, piano or oboe), chamber music including a concert for piano and violin Le petit prince.
