He died in Munich in 1968 after collapsing while conducting Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde in exactly the same place as Felix Mottl had done in 1911. Keiberth made the first stereo recording of Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle in 1955. Among his other recordings, his interpretations of Carl Maria von Weber's Der Freischutz made in 1958 for EMI, and a 'live' set of Richard Strauss's Arabella (featuring Lisa della Casa and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau) made in 1963 for DG are still considered among the best versions.
