“ A pleasing mixture of music full of beauty and humor. The featured instrument is a 5 string kantele. Yet this is no run-of-the-mill kantele recording. As Steinbock said in an interview, “The kantele is the Finnish National instrument, but the ‘runaway kantele’ runs away from strictly traditional music.” What you will hear when you buy this CD (and I heartily encourage you to get your copy or download it from either http://cdbaby.com/cd/stanisteinbock or amazon.com) are tunes with quirky (in the best sense of the word) names like “Angry Dog Waltz,” “Return of the Space Turkeys,” “Insect Adventures,” “The Tapeworm’s Lament,” as well as a few tunes about cats. Steinbock definitely has a sense of humor in choosing names for his songs, and that sense of humor extends to the music itself. There is a lot more to this recording than humor: listeners will be delighted by the beautiful simplicity in many of the pieces. ”
