I don't usually like the sound of the harpsichord, but I do like the harpsichord version better for this piece.  At least to me it sounds like there's more melodic and harmonic clarity in the harpsichord version, while the reverb in the piano version makes it sound a bit more muddy and damp.  I have to say you did an expert job with your inventive episodes and traveling to some quite harmonically distant keys (from A minor to C minor?  Unheard of in the Baroque era) and back.  The rhythmic intensity propels the piece forward which is totally expected in a Baroque styled piece.  Great job!
