Lorian Bartle’s music is inspired by many things. Here she features that which inspires her the most.
Lorian is German at heart and loves the cafe culture of Germany and Austria. She enjoys sitting in an international environment to read and listen to the news of the day.
In additional to excellent coffee, Lorian is happy to indulge in exquisitely prepared desserts. The Sachertorte, pictured, is among her favorites.
The Rhine river, which runs through the heart of Germany, is one of Lorian’s favorite places to visit. She particularly enjoys its musical inspirations, such as the famous Lorelei.
The churches of Germany are another source of inspiration, such as the amazing Cologne Cathedral. No one has done Gothic architecture on a grander scale.
Speaking of grand, is there any castle more impressive than the massive one in Heidelberg? It’s astounding size if offset by its sublime beauty.
