"Max George Wilcox died on January 20 of this year at the age of 88. He won five Grammy Awards, and the pianist Arthur Rubinstein called him his musical collaborator. ("Arthur Rubinstein never chose a take in his life without me," Wilcox told an interviewer in 2007.) For 17 years, until Rubinstein's retirement in 1976, Mr. Wilcox produced some sixty of his recordings for RCA Victor Red Seal. He counted Rubinstein's Chopin recordings among his favorite productions, which also included recordings of Beethoven by the pianist Richard Goode and the Emerson String Quartet. He joined RCA Victor as a sound editor in 1958, later advancing to engineer and then producer. In addition to Rubinstein, he worked with both established and emerging Red Seal artists, including Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra; Itzhak Perlman; Van Cliburn; Gregor Piatigorsky; Peter Serkin; Charles Munch and the Boston Symphony; and the Guarneri and Cleveland Quartets. In 1974, after leaving RCA, he became an independent producer, recording Dawn Upshaw, Richard Stoltzman, Zubin Mehta, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Tokyo Quartet, the Beaux-Arts Trio, and Deborah Voigt, among others."
