Is this possible for anyone to play?

From Saxton Rose, music by Philippe Hersant:

Looking at that, I have a hard time figuring out what sounds the composer wants, and why he thinks the bassoon will make them. Perhaps there's someone who can play that as written, but I'm quite sure I never will. The leaps are too large, and too quick. Surely, we're not meant to interpret the notes literally,  are we??

Wait! There's also flutter tonguing? Really? Now, if it's possible, I'm even more confused.
