I can enjoy either. A modern piano brings a different sound world to this repertoire from what would have been available at the time, and gives the performer more possibilities with some interpretive decisions. However, it can be great to listen to a great performance on the fortepiano too, and that can bring an interesting and different perspective to the music. It has more to do with the performer being sensitive to the music for me, rather than whether the instrument is a piano or fortepiano.
