In 1948, Greenbaum debuted Alan Bush's Le Quatorze Juillet. Other contemporary composers whose works she championed were James Iliff's Piano Sonata, Arnold Schoenberg's Piano Concerto which was broadcast and Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2 (BBC Proms, 26 August 1955). She also performed Schoenberg's Phantasy, Op. 4.
On 24 July 1947, Greenbaum was the soloist at the Proms playing the Piano Concerto No. 2 in A major by Franz Liszt. On 10 September 1948, she was the soloist at the Proms playing Legend for piano and orchestra by John Ireland. In all, Greenbaum performed 13 times at the Proms.
Greenbaum was the pianist on the recording of The Rio Grande by Constant Lambert. In the book Constant Lambert: Beyond the Rio Grande, Lambert told Greenbaum "that he preferred her playing to (Hamilton) Harty's", even though a prominent wrong note went uncorrected and was only digitally rectified years later for one of its CD transfers.
In 1956, Greenbaum married psychiatrist Andrew Crowcroft. They had two children and lived in Camden for twenty years, throwing parties for exiles, writers and musicians. He died on 12 March 2002. She co-authored a book with her husband on the lullaby.
She died in Hampstead, London on 15 June 2017.
