Neither!  >:D

I'd rather be stranded in the company of the keyboard music and the cantatas.

Sir, we are talking about an island in the middle of no-where devoid of any sign of civilisation -- not Heaven.

If I must choose a set I shall definitely opt for the Cello suites (Sigiswald Kuijkens recording on violoncello da spalla). But I rate the b-minor violin partita higher than any of the cello suites.
