Wife of noted American pianist Eugene List (1918-1985), "Glenn and List were strongly interested in unusual and new repertory, such as the double concertos of G.B. Viotti and Anis Fuleihan, and the Duo Sonata by Franz Liszt (which they rediscovered) ... Glenn’s playing had an ingratiating lyric quality and a communicative charm, though there was a core of strength and determination that belied her youthful appearance. Her tone was sweet and pure though not very large; her technique was secure in a vast repertory." Boris Schwarz in Grove Music Online
"Glenn was admired as the foremost woman violinist of her generation." Wikipedia
