Abstract: For any simple Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{g}$ and an element $ \mu \in \mathfrak{g}^*$, the corresponding commutative subalgebra $ \mathcal {A}_{\mu }$ of $ \mathcal {U}(\mathfrak{g})$ is defined as a homomorphic image of the Feigin-Frenkel centre associated with $ \mathfrak{g}$. It is known that when $ \mu $ is regular this subalgebra solves Vinberg's quantisation problem, as the graded image of $ \mathcal {A}_{\mu }$ coincides with the Mishchenko-Fomenko subalgebra $ \overline {\mathcal {A}}_{\mu }$ of $ \mathcal {S}(\mathfrak{g})$. By a conjecture of Feigin, Frenkel, and Toledano Laredo, this property extends to an arbitrary element $ \mu $. We give sufficient conditions on $ \mu $ which imply the property. In particular, this proves the conjecture in type C and gives a new proof in type A. We show that the algebra $ \mathcal {A}_{\mu }$ is free in both cases and produce its generators in an explicit form. Moreover, we prove that in all classical types generators of $ \mathcal {A}_{\mu }$ can be obtained via the canonical symmetrisation map from certain generators of $ \overline {\mathcal {A}}_{\mu }$. The symmetrisation map is also used to produce free generators of nilpotent limits of the algebras $ \mathcal {A}_{\mu }$ and to give a positive solution of Vinberg's problem for these limit subalgebras.
