From Pancho Vladigerov’s testament
“…If the state should turn the part of the house in which my wife and I lived into a museum, it is my will that: my wife, Elka Vladigerova, shall remain there until her death and she shall be appointed as curator and keeper of this museum.
It is also my will that: all my original manuscripts, as well as all my printed works, all my notes and musical scores, all my gramophone records, my magnetic tape strips, as well as my entire archive, including letters and various other documents, shall remain at my home, irrespective of when it shall be turned into a museum.
I sign this document of my own free will.
