Repertoire of vocal music since the end of 19th century to present

Preferably piano + violin + tenor but anything will do. So far I only found some bits and pieces on youtube, Anton Webern, Massenet, Ravel and others. It can be also the end of 19th century but I am mostly interested in structure of melodies for any voice and how did they change through the century starting from the end of the 19th. 

If there is some good collection on imslp (like Schubert's Winterreise for example) from this time period please let me know. 

Thank you.

I'm assuming you mean vocal pieces with the possibility of a more intimate performance i.e. solo voice + piano. Look at the Wolf, Strauss, Mahler, Berg and Schoenberg Lieder if you haven't done so already. Fauré and Debussy for chansons.

 

EDIT: Oh, and Vaughan Williams and Britten if you need something later but still broadly tonal. Stravinsky wrote some small ensemble songs, too. You haven't really specified what it is that you need.

 

Thanks for the suggestions. To put it simply I need songs for piano + voice (preferably tenor since my friend is tenor and asked me to write something for piano, his voice and violin). But the best outcome would be to have sheet music available for it on imslp as well so I can analyze it better than just by ear.

It can be tonal or atonal. Examples of both are great. I heard Boli mnie Glowa by Bacewicz on one singing competittion at my school and it moved me like nothing else before. So something like that as well.

I am searching as well but Faurre, Debussy Schoenberg, Webern are the names that keep appearing over and over again so that's why I am asking here to have something more to start from.

Does your terminology of "vocal music" mean songs for solo voice with piano, chamber cast or orchestra or does that include choral music as well?

 

Oh my I apologize for not specifying. I mean only piano + voice (+ additional instrument most preferably violin would be fine as well but not strictly necessary).

The presence of  newly created songs for voice and piano is, for example, very alive in my country. :)

 

Ooh something new. I have never heard a classical song in Slovenian language. IS there somewhere I can listen to these new songs or are they not yet on the internet?

This set is from 19th century but, perhaps, you'll be interested. it's for voice, oboe and piano.

So many pieces to go through. Thank you. Love the modulations and harmonies especially in Vaughan WIlliams although not very modern but beautiful. I'll certainly pick some inspiration from the collections you offered. Thank you.
