I will leave this forum and pretty much cry to myself in my closet (in the fetal position), if someone dares to play Bach or any baroque music in a 21st Century-Jazz-Elton John-Nonsense style and uploads it in the Audition Room.
Not everyone likes rocking adaptions of baroque music. It seems however that this kind of music eludes to do so as the numerous examples show. In my case, I am open minded to something like that, and like to improvise or to play some Bach too on different instruments. But everyone's taste is different.
However regarding that topic here, that is competely another thing, it is just the opposit. The HIP development you can watch anywhere tries to come back to the origin, to search and discover how the music was originally played. So no 19th or 20th or 21 Century-Jazz-Elton John-Nonsense style, instead coming close to how Bach played, so far it's possible to recover. That does not mean that one can not or should not apply pedal on a modern piano. The goal is more to remove the over-romanticed manner one is used to hear Bach over the last decades or centuries and to dig for the original pure beauty. In the assumption that old Bach not only knew how to compose wonderful music, but to perform it wonderful too. Since no original recordings are available we have to base on what is written about the interpretation of the original time. The HIP is the result or the beginning of a development to come close to that. Hope that's now clear what is meant.
So no need for you to cry to yourself in the fetal position. Better come out of the closet and try to discover on your piano what historical informed performance can give you
