Daniel Golossov was born in St. Petersburg, where he began learning piano before emigrating to France. He studied piano and chamber music at the Conservatoire of Nice, later linguistics at the Lycée Fénelon and la Sorbonne University in Paris - the artist speaks fluent English, German, Russian, Italian, and French. Alongside his literary scholarship he specialised in piano accompaniment and choral direction at the Conservatoires of Rueil-Malmaison and Paris, where he also had his first singing lessons. He was awarded the Paris Conservatoire's prize for singing. Combining his love of music, languages, and history, he made the lyric art his life's goal and discipline.
He attended the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatorio in Milan and the Laboratorio Lirico Europeo for three years, refining his vocal technique with Bonaldo Giaiotti; he then joined the Opernstudio in Zurich. In those years Daniel Golossov made a prolific operatic debut in a variety of roles such as Timur (Turandot), Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro), Don Alfonso (Così fan tutte), Colline (La Bohème), Ferrando (Il trovatore), Sparafucile (Rigoletto), the Commendatore (Don Giovanni), Ramfis (Aida), Raimondo (Lucia di Lammermoor). He has been featured in Alfano's Cyrano de Bergerac and in Prokofiev's Le joueur at La Scala, and in Don Carlo, La fedeltà premiata, and Gianni Schicchi at the Zurich Opera House.
Daniel Golossov subsequently began a long-term collaboration with the Opera House of Lausanne in Switzerland, where he performed Angelotti (Tosca), Colline (La Bohème), Bartolo (Le nozze di Figaro), Nilakantha (Lakmé), Wurm (Luisa Miller), and Orbazzano (Tancredi).
Other important guest appearances include Uberto in La serva padrona in Lugano, Don Giovanni (title role) in Cologne and the Sankt Margarethen Festival in Austria, Rocco (Fidelio) at the Anhaltisches Theater in Dessau, Germany, Raimondo (Lucia di Lammermoor) at the Tiroler Landestheater in Innbruck, Austria, and Don Iñigo Gomez (L'heure espagnole) in Shanghai with the SSO.
Daniel Golossov has worked with such conductors as Nello Santi, Patrick Fournillier, Bruno Amaducci, Maurizio Barbacini, Roberto Rizzi Brignoli, Matteo Beltrami, Daniel Barenboim, Lorin Maazel, and Zhang Jiemin.
