Bach - Brandenburg Concertos

I'm looking to explore different interpretations of Bach, particularly of the Brandenburg Concertos. My favourite is by Karl Richter. Any suggestions? (I'm open to his music being played on both period and modern instruments by the way.)

Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G major BWV 1048 - 1. Allegro - 2. Adagio - YouTube

That's a lot of harpsichords for this girl, but I do like The English Concert's version of them quite a bit.

Glenn Gould's The Art of the Fugue and this two recordings of the Goldberg Variations are essential. Also check his recordings of the two- and three-part inventions.

Edit: I'm assuming you are looking for other Bach stuff too.

When you guys say 'Bach", do you say "Bock" or do you say "Ba*phelgm*"?

It's not "batch?"

Thanks for the suggestions, will check 'em out. I disagree with this widespread notion that Bach should only be played on period instruments. And even though most of the recordings I have are with period instruments (and I think they're great), I love Richter's orchestration of the Brandenburg Concertos on modern instruments. So I've just been curious lately about different interpretations of Bach's music.

Yo Yo Ma's. It the only one I have. Of the five recordings I have of Haydn's cello concertos, Ma's is the go-to one, so I figured that's the Bach I would like.

I'll have to consider a modern instrument recording of the Brandenburgs, because it really is too much harpsichord.

That's the only Bach CD(s) I own, but that doesn't mean that I don't think ... nay, that I don't KNOW that Bach is fucking awesome.

Casals' recording of the Cello Suites is fantastic. I might prefer it to Yo Yo Ma's.
