Una carriera lunga 85 anni, 43 album incisi, oltre 1000 canzoni scritte, 300 milioni di dischi venduti. Questo e molto altro era Charles Aznavour, alias Chahnourh Varinag Aznavourian, uno dei padri della tradizione musicale francese del dopoguerra e probabilmente lo chansonnier per eccellenza, con un repertorio musicale in sette lingue e numerose versioni in italiano delle sue canzoni. Uno stile, quello d'oltralpe degli anni '50/'60, che ha influito in buona parte sulla musica italiana degli anni successivi.
