See if you can get hold of Dean Sutcliffe’s book on Scarlatti.

Just reading your post quickly I’d advise you to be wary of assuming that all of Scarlatti’s music was written for harpsichord, I believe that the princess he wrote for had both pianos and organs at her disposal. As you can imagine there’s a lot of scholarship about this.

To see what’s possible on harpsichord (which are themselves far from uniform in design) maybe contrast Pierre Hantai’s approach with Sergio Vartolo’s. And if piano is your instrument, maybe listened to some informed performances - like Anna Zylberajch.
