I am sure he tried out various combinations in his own performances! There is a little matter of "style" - musicologists seem to have worked out with some degree =   of probability what he would have done! To my mind, the great "A minor" calls for a massive chorus sound ringing around vast resonant spaces to develop the fundamental tonality of A minor. It's the release that counts!
