Charles Aznavour in concert - Ed io tra di voi

16 July 2010

A unique voice symbolizing elegance comes to one of the best sceneries in the world: Charles Aznavour brings all his talent to Saint Marks Square in Venice for a concert that will go down in history. This event, as is immediately evident, focuses on emotions, memories and the timeless class of French singing, a mixture of poetry and sweet sound which has inspired numerous Italian artists and transformed its main performers into characters that are followed, beloved and quoted all over the world. Charles Aznavour is the quintessential French singer, even if he is used to singing in a variety of languages, a fact that has immensely contributed to his fame. A French naturalized chanson entertainer of Armenian origins, he started singing when he was still a boy and became famous thanks to Edith Piaf, who wanted him in her tours at home and abroad. Aznavoice is his nickname, making him a kind of ideal French equivalent of Sinatra, thanks also to his acting qualities that make it difficult to resist his charm when he is on stage: his personality dominates the audience who is swayed by his words and music that are always like a story full of emotions. During the concert in Saint Marks square on July 16th, Aznavour will sing in his native language, but will not neglect Italian singing, which has been a regular presence in his immense production (he has authored more than a thousand songs): that is why on stage with him there will also be Italian artists, namely: Patty Pravo and Massimo Ranieri, and numerous other ones. You and I, the title of this event, will bring this performer even closer to his public in an intimate but at the same time solemn celebration. After singing on all the most important world stages, the Venice stage of Saint Marks square represents another peak of Aznavours longstanding career. He has duelled with the biggest names in music, has received the highest accolades (amongst them the Honour Legion and he is also Ambassador for Armenia in Switzerland) and has had his songs covered by the biggest stars around the world in fantastic renditions: Charles Aznavour is one of the most fascinating stories that the world of music has to tell and with the background of Saint Marks Square the magic will be completed.
