Fairfield resident Werner Elmker performs a piano recital called “Classics Rock: From the Classics to Pop...With Soul” Oct. 3 at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center. Over the years, Elmker​ has garnered quite a following in Fairfield with his refined musical touch and hallmark improvisational flair. “Classics Rock” bridged the classical and rock worlds, spanning the full range from “Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones to ​the​ ​Revolutionary Etude by Chopin; from Carole King’s “I Feel the Earth Move” to the ethereal Gnossienne by Satie; from Keith Jarrett’s famously improvised “Köln Concert” to “​Footprints in the Snow​”​ by Debussy, or riffing on a Stevie Wonder medley to the passion of ​a ​Moment Musicaux by Rachmaninoff.
