Such is the case with Monsieur Charles Aznavour, now 91, who opened the Batroun International Festival Saturday.Aznavour's last concert in Lebanon was at the Jounieh Festival in 2012 .It's the way Aznavour uses music that has fed his enduring popularity.The fact that the song communicates so strongly with youth suggests what Aznavour has tapped into: Less what it's like to be young than what it is like to be older and to reflect on one's youth.The theme of loss is evident in many of Aznavour's songs.Aznavour's songs are generally written in the first-person. The combination of poignant lyrics, fast-paced music and a voice whose tone is never simply poignant or simplistically dismissive, constitutes one of Aznavour's hallmarks.As Saturday's performance proved, his songs still leave the audience cheering, dancing and singing.
