Not a day has passed since i was a kid in 1963 that Dom's TV music has not been with me. Simply incomparable.

This is very sad news. I remember the frontieres family coming in to the arroyo chamiso pediatric clinic in Santa Fe with their children.when they were younger. Robin usually brought them in, but Dominic came occasionally as well. What a nice down to earth man. I always looked forward to seeing the family there. Great parents , to Emily, Joseph , nick and sophia. What a huge loss, god bless the family during this sad time. Great family.

Maestro Frontiere's wonderful music first touched me when I was just a child. He remains one of my favorite composers now that I'm 65. I'm so sorry for your loss. We will never lose his music.

Although I never met Mr. Frontiere, his music has had a profound effect on me. I pray that his family and friends will be comforted in his loss.

Film and TV composers are, for me, the modern equivalent of classical composers. When done right, their music is evocative, complimentary and a great part of the whole.

Farewell and thanks to one of the best.

I am so sorry to hear this. I often spoke to Dom about plans to revive the Invaders series as a movie until the crash of 2007 hit. His sense of humor, easy going nature and musical brilliance will live on in my heart forever. Much love to his family.
