Something to think about.

I also just have Yo Yo Ma's recording of the cello suites; haven't heard Casal's. Will check it out, thanks.

I'm curious, are you fond of Concerto no. 5, which is pretty harpsichord-centric? I love the use of the harpsichord in the Brandenburg Concertos.

This is a nice, rousing (historically-informed) performance of Concerto no. 5 I've always liked:

J.S.Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No.5 in D BWV1050 - Croatian Baroque Ensemble - YouTube

The strings are lovely, but the harpsichord is too much. When I do listen to them, I like 2 and 3.

Yup, 2 and 3 (along with 5) are the ones I listen to the most as well

It appears that even with a modern instrument recording, the harpsichord is still there.

Well Bach was one of the pioneers of harpsichord concertos, and the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 relies heavily on its use.

Yup. The harpsichord, when used properly, can be a quite endearing instrument.
